Lost in unlikely obsessions with Antarctica, we make sense of the uncontrollable through dreaming of what we cannot touch.
This cold, white expanse comes to represent something unchanging though it is among the most threatened ecosystems in the world. This performance contains coarse language and strobe lighting.
Written and performed by Tasnim Hossain, video and lighting designed by Morgan Moroney with cello performed by Jeremy Campese.
