The performance will make the visible invisible and the invisible visible, providing a bizarre conduit between nature, a theatre and a nightclub. Guided by two personified smoke machines, the performance will take audiences through a series of clouded images from the poetic to the absurd, the real to the surreal, the spectacular to the banal. The minimal scenographic element of fog will be pushed to maximal effect paying homage to clowning, camp and to finding joy within the ordinary.
