“We started to feel it edging nearer. We lived and worked in one of the most affluent urban centres in the world; a dense mesh grid of bodies, metal, concrete and production. Glass so clear it looked as if it were air until a greasy pool at the periphery of your vision gave it away, buildings aspiring to exist as the cloud; the workers their data, a seamless flow into intangible mass. We sought total transparency. When we moved through the city it was as if we never even touched the ground. And then the bottom fell out.”

Rogue Agents Live Night explores disaster and escape. Promoting a new set of archetypes for this moment where everything must change, this collectively authored piece brings together music, performance, image-production, staging and new narratives across an evening where we will leave this planet behind and seek new modes of representation of, and agencies for, ourselves elsewhere.
