Work in Regress

Work in Regress

A story about an authority unable to rule over anything at all, as it is placed on a huge, vast, empty space. I was interested in understanding what the actions of such a master would be, and what kind of rituals he would create while lacking the very property which activates his power. How would such a master react when encountering, one day, a very dumb sheep, for example?

Performance created and performed by Ioana Mona Popovici

“…quirky and engaging exploration, …honeddown knowing performance…”
