They create rough compositions from fragments of pop music, informal movements, sculptural interruptions and found sounds in a pulsing assemblage of a performance environment that can barely contain all its disparate parts. Practices of gathering and collecting informed by the everyday science fiction of Ursula K. Le Guin - especially her short essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction* - have and will continue to be an ongoing point of contact for the performance.
Katz Mulk will be in residency for a week leading up to the performance; using this time to work with local artists and choreographers on a series of scores that will form part of the performance.
*'The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction' can be found in Le Guin's collection of essays, Dancing at the Edge of the World (1989).
