What does it mean to be human, in an era when our destructive influence over the planet is redefining the laws of nature? This magnetic new solo performance by Justin Shoulder introduces the figure of Carrion: a post-human spectre that has the ability to shapeshift into multiple forms and speak multiple languages.

Seemingly alone in a vast, strange world, Carrion wanders through an archaeological site uncovering objects. As Carrion's journey unfolds, we glimpse startling new truths about simulation, consumption and worship in our age of excess and acceleration.

Drawing on queer and ancestral mythologies, Carrion transports us into a place where the distant past collides with the far future, alerting us to the changes that already lie within ourselves. Carrion contains nudity, strobe and smoke effects.
