The Liz performs “No Comet” at Kontraklang

The Liz will perform their new production No Comet on April 2, 2022 at Kontraklang concert series at Villa Elisabeth in Berlin.

The Liz have premiered “No Comet” in October 2021 at Sowieso Berlin with the support of Musikfonds, transforming themselves into sentient dinosaurs and the venue into a dinosaur music cafe. The accompanying film was shown on two window-fronts throughout the weekend. At Kontraklang, The Liz will play a soundtrack to the “No Comet” film.

In their latest production No Comet, The Liz creates a piece of non-humanist speculative fiction, positing a world where the dinosaurs did not become extinct and are, in fact, highly sentient beings. As a species, humans tend to take for granted our place in the world, forgetting that evolution — and life itself — is predicated upon chance and contingency. In No Comet, The Liz considers these chance events and imagines other possible pasts, presents and futures, in order to hopefully acquire a larger lens through which to view ideas of sapience and societies.
