MALUS is a 60-minute duo-performance that tells the story of the apple, scientifically known as Malus Domestica. MALUS takes the audience on a historical journey from the mythical origins of thE apple as the fruit of paradise, to the futuristic Apple Computers of the 21st century — with many improvised, unexpected and humorous stops in between, covering the many uses of the apple as a food and religious symbol.
