The InterArts Department at Idyllwild Arts is pleased to present a special collaboration between its students and UK-based interactive theatre company, Stan’s Cafe. “Of All The People in All The World” is an internationally-acclaimed performance installation that turns abstract human population statistics into emotionally gripping stories using grains of rice. The public is invited to view Idyllwild Arts iteration “Of All The People in All The World” at a Celebratory Reception on Friday, February 9 from 6 to 7.30pm, featuring InterArts students and Stan’s Café founders, James Yarker and Graeme Rose. The free event takes place at the Parks Exhibition Gallery located on Idyllwild Arts stunning campus (52500 Temecula Road #38, Idyllwild, CA). The unique exhibition will also run from February 6 – 14, 2024.
The rice is carefully measured to represent human population statistics arranged in labelled piles, creating an ever-changing landscape of rice. Their juxtapositions can be moving, shocking, celebratory, witty and thought-provoking. That’s it. This installation is that simple—and that elegantly complex. After the performance the rice will be donated to charities and recycled.
“Of All The People In All The World” has toured the world since its inception in 2003, landing at top international venues, including The Kennedy Center in Washington DC and the World Financial Center in New York, adapting to the times and contexts in which it is found.
