In a collective process, Keith Hennessy and 15 performers have developed an experimental hybrid out of contemporary dance, performance-installation and political theatre. The production methods of the performance can be understood as a response to both economic as well as ecological crises. New members join in at each performance, risking their bodies and spirits. A temporary, queer micro-society emerges – with no clear beginning and an open end – in which hierarchies are being negotiated and played with.
