THE SHOW: PE2O
A new work, PE2O responds to the reality that humanity's half-century of plastic comfort and waste have changed the composition of the planets oceans. It explores a futuristic earth in which all natural resources have expired and what remains is a world of plastic. The bodies on stage attempt to subsist in this environment, created by past generations’ desire for comfort and disposability. Through visual performance art, PE2O exists as an embodied shame pole—the objective of which is to harness the capacity for shame to incite critical thought in the spectator.
