is a dance performance, an installation and a concert.
a gathering of anthems and curious constallations. a hush and a puff and some pretty ballads. surely an attempt for the better but also not so pedagogic. it's a magnitude of thruths and heroes but honestly we're not so interested in neither of them.
it all started from an ancient poetry collection, it ended up in sadboi tunes. and somewhere in between the exfoliated layers of skin and latex can be found a sensation of greatness and great defeat, a sim that can not pass the door and a swenglish sss that sizzles too deep.
Come come come all. We'll sing and play and dance through fears, joyful tears and a few complicated years. for all of you you, from all of us. /ish
