AFTER ALL is a visual poetry choreographed by Mehdi Farajpour, following a series of Empty Body workshops at Sala HIROSHIMA (Barcelona). Regarding dramaturgical structure, AFTER ALL is the most eccentric performance ever created by Mehdi Farajpour. The story takes place in the future, where there is nothing natural left on Earth for the next generation… they have nothing to do except wait for their turn to use the bathroom- although a thinker is taking his time during his turn- causing impatience among the population. The performance contains of two partitions which are nearly identical, excluding a few elements in the second partition which are to be discovered by the audience.
