Over the course of a year, Jamie Crewe worked on Pastoral Drama every day. The piece comprises two parallel videos that use allegory and animation to think about progress. Through intricate drawings in ink and pencil, speckled clay, and encrusted plasticine, Crewe reflects upon the evolution of mythic narratives, (inter-) personal change, and collective political time. 

Pastoral Drama juxtaposes the ancient Greek legend of Eurydice and the Underworld with Agostino Agazzari’s Eumelio, a 15th- century opera composed for the male inhabitants of a Roman seminary. Eumelio’s titular male figure stands in for Eurydice, and so achieves a different fate. In its double telling, Pastoral Drama envisions the collapse of mythic pasts with the dangerous after-world of the present.
