“Welcome to the concentration of camp.”  – Francis Bacon


“Life is just a game played out for no reason, so there is no need one shouldn’t try to achieve everything one wants. After all, life is nothing but a series of sensations. So one may as well try and make oneself extraordinary, extraordinary and brilliant, even if it means becoming a brilliant fool like me and having the kind of disastrous life that I have had.” – Francis Bacon

4 characters find themselves immersed in darkness, Inside them a whisper calls; And to the flame they go.

Taking you to another world this performance is raw, powerful and intense. Fluidity waves throughout the performance giving the dancers an internal sense of unity; instinctively knowing where each other are and where they are going.
