LONG DESCRIPTION

What does it mean to be human, in an era when our destructive influence over the planet is rapidly redefining the laws of nature? This magnetic new solo performance by Justin Shoulder introduces the figure of Carrion: a post-human spectre that has the ability to shapeshift into multiple forms and speak multiple languages.

With an ego driven by nostalgia Carrion wanders an archaeological site uncovering objects. Material investigations reveal deep learning about simulation, consumption and worship.

Drawing on queer and bicultural ancestral mythologies, Carrion transports us into a place where the distant past collides with the far future, alerting us to the changes that already lie within ourselves.
