This show was heavily influenced by a Butoh master class led by Nicole Legette.
In the darkness of a Bywater warehouse where the spoils of Mardi Gras sleep, a band of fleeting spirits are awakened amidst a labyrinth of cardboard and steel. Inspired by Butoh, a revolutionary form of Japanese dance, Port/Architect guides a roving audience through the ghostly remains of an imagined manufacturing plant. In this strange factory a group of luminous cardboard administrators keep watch over living, breathing machines who fitfully dance their way through the elaborate and intricate mechanics of mass production.
