Is it comforting to know that things that fall can break apart in an infinite number of ways – but never in the same way twice? “Just before Falling” allows audiences to experience that moment just before the fall, just before things shatter, over and over again. Between constant repetition and attention to detail, two masked performers parading as deceptively real-looking human-animal hybrids navigate what appear to be the same situations time and time again. El Cuco Projekt confronts audiences “with the unpredictable and thus with life itself” (Thomas Linden, choices). With this vivid display of our everyday routines turned topsy-turvy, “Just before Falling” challenges our linear understanding of time and space.
