Motor Show

1 Jan 2012

A car arrives in a hidden wasteland. Inside, a young couple kiss, fumble, argue and plan a world for each other. And all the time, the dark world turns around them.

Take your seats for a wild, open-air performance in the wasteland of Black Rock. Put on headphones to eavesdrop on the intimate interiors of cars approaching from the distance. Get caught in the headlights as a world of tinted windows and furtive dealings unfolds before you.
