For The Ones Who Walk Away

‘My utopia has no ground, everything is just sky... ’

From the company that brought you The Bacchae and Gonzo, this new performance installation takes over SITEWORKS, Brunswick, inviting audiences to roam its many rooms in search of the traces of the ones who walked away.
