An interactive journey across a vast landscape of associated histories, FROM THE PIG PILE features original music by Graham Reynolds, puppetry by Connor Hopkins, dancing, marauding by Todd London, a Yeahoh sighting and enough champagne for everyone.
For three (hundred thousand) years now, we of the Pig Pile have squirmed, squealed and de-structed our way across a vast landscape of associative histories. At times, they morph together into a narrative structure, and at others, they elude us completely. There is no panacea for feral swine work. The closer we get to the complicated porcine truth of what it means to be human, the more our numbers have dwindled, and we are now on the brink of extinction. Only you can help us to piece these pieces together, before it’s too late.
Note: If you have any wooden items that you wish to be preserved for all eternity, you may please to bring them with you to the occasion.
