Read Eliza Bent's TDF piece on some higher glimmer.
Welcome to some higher glimmer in our landscape of flat, an immersive feminist disaster musical. In the event of a metaphysical shift you may be asked to change position. Our journey will bend genres, invite goof, and traverse the double-edged sword of solitude. Settle into your seat for a musical and choreographic exploration of motherhood, isolation, "femininity", and apocalypse (both personal and global). You will provided with all equipment required, and some that is not required.
