The party has been cancelled, and we’re staying home.
It looks like a mess out there.
This is a show about wanting to bring order to mess, and wanting to disrupt order. About wanting to build new things with old shit. A collage performance of cut up bodies, grafted animals, half landscapes, recomposed histories, dissected worlds.
like the party has been cancelled is a reflection on control, on losing yourself, and on desire. An intuitive, meditative, image trip, that attempts to burst its own banks and flood the room. With you in it.
