Musical performance.

A metaphorical fantasia inspired by the proliferation of sprawling networks that have taken root in our society and stifle the very idea of freedom. It is the unlikely union of six musicians (some from backgrounds so different that they would never have met otherwise!) and two authors sharing seemingly conflicting territories (search for meaning vs. worship of the meaningless, duty of responsibility vs. duty of anarchy, tolerance vs. the middle finger). An unconventional evening, at once light and serious, disturbing and festive.
