THE FALL '01 is a choreographic multimedia drama on terror, war and torture, depicting the wholesale dehumanization of the Global War Of Terror - an empire at the precipice of its fall - not for the faint of heart. It is the most desperate story of our time - not a linear narrative, but a series of gripping scenes that define the horror of our epoch, an Iliad for our time.
THE FALL `01 begins September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center attack. The horror is enacted through sound and image media actualities and corporeal renderings of the carnage. The massive regime and media-driven hysteria that followed leads into the drum-up to the war. The war itself is enacted in sound, image and dance, followed by Mission Accomplished and descent into the Global Torture Gulag. The final destination is the final escape many detainees have chosen.
The movie is edited from video tracking of the three performances from the live world stage premiere, Sept. 11-12-13, 2006, Queretaro, Mexico; choreography by Agnieszka Laska and Luis Arreguin; video by Takafumi Uehara; concept and score by Jack Gabel.
THE FALL '01 Audio track is overwhelmingly powerful, It is flown in from the performance disk, created by Jack Gabel in his North Pacific Music studio from the live concert performance of the original score for a 28-piece orchestra.
'...one of the most potent artistic responses to war and state terrorism perpetrated by our government I've ever seen...' - Brett Campbell - Eugene Weekly
