Site specific performance about the terror of unattended baggage

Baggage

A devised response to the curse of unattended baggage and the terror that comes with increased state surveillance.

The audience for this work were invited to an art gallery opening which was then interrupted by the show, asking people to exit the building. They were then herded like cattle, with performers rounding them up and ushering them to various performance locations, including a large projection on the adjacent building of the recent escape from woomera of asylum seekers.
