When all the structures that once held humanity together have crumbled, and civilization is only a distant memory, what remains? Wandering the wastelands, scanning a bleak horizon, what keeps disparate travellers moving forward? Drawn together by the trickle of life in a small urban oasis, surrounded by desolation, can conscience and compassion survive after society has eroded?

An homage to the life work of the late Shogo Ohta (1939-2007), this avant garde movement exploration fights against what Ohta called the “new religion” of the world: speed. Performed in extreme slow tempo, without words, this radical theatrical experience lays bare the performers, and the audience.
