Bonanza is a small town in the U.S. state of Colorado. With five full-time residents – seven if you cast a net over the entire county – it may be true that it's the smallest town in the state. "Bonanza," defies the imagination.The name Bonanza comes from the town's gold mining history.Gail, one half of Bonanza's sole straight couple, discloses at one point that she was selected to be the town mayor.Another lady, apparently one-half of Bonanza's sole lesbian couple, calmly discusses her relationship with the elves who reside in the woods surrounding the town, and shares her theories of the place's relationship with angels."Bonanza" is the third work in Berlin's Holocene cycle of performances, each named after the human agglomerations where they're set – following "Quds," the first, and "Iqaluit," the second, and preceding a fourth work called "Moscow".The progressive conception of performance inherent in "Bonanza" reflects Home Works' curatorial inclinations as much as the artists' practice. The forum's performance section has been programmed by Belgian curator Frie Leysen, whose several accomplishments include devising MP5 – the 2007 edition of the peripatetic Euro-Arab art festival Meeting Points.
