This assemblage art event borrows freely from dance, film, installation, drawing, poetry, and theater. At its heart is the question: what is belonging? The complicated response each of us has to this question is both intuitive and pragmatic, psychological and highly environmental. What happens when our homes, both the inner kingdom and the outer physical structure, are taken away? Living in a city that seems to be gorging itself and swallowing its citizens in the process, this interactive experience will create a scenario in which it may be possible for us to feel like a community.
