An intricate and beautiful casket is paraded through the streets. There are two attendants, serious and deadpan, there is a clanking percussive sound track. They choose six lucky passers-by to wear headphones and peep inside where they hear a short poem an argument and a song. The casket contains a stunning illusion which will baffle and charm even the most cynical as they witness the birth of a new species. When the inner story ends the six look back to the surrounding audience who have been transformed. The show, which lasts around ten minutes, then repeats over a forty to sixty minute period. Funded by The Arts Council of England and supported by Without Walls Reliquary is part of a two year collaboration with Artizani. Two people on the road.
