Stupormarket

Stupormarket is a dance theater work about the economic crisis and recession. From the luxury market to the unemployment line, and the trading floor to the housing market, Stupormarket ranges broadly across the economic terrain and two different camps of economic thought - New Keynesian and Neoclassicist. The culmination of a three-year long project about the economy, Stupormarket expands upon two previous short works - Thrift and Death of a (Prada) Salesman. The extended nature of the project was designed to track the recession through its lifespan.
