Dressed in their finest prom wear from yesteryear, armed with a sledgehammer and a single block of cement, Tacky Pioneer are ready to commence construction.
This new devised, interdisciplinary performance examines the ways in which we memorialise people, places, and events, from the tragic, to the comical, to the utterly mundane. A part-gig theatre, part-funeral, part-existential meditation, and fully absurd show asking why do we choose to remember? To forget? And how do we remember what we once had?
The piece is part of a larger project series that will be taking place throughout 2019, comprising workshops, events, and installations.
