Voodoo

Description Details

‘Painful, defiant and right’ ***** The Stage

Out of the ashes of time, Voodoo rises.

Project O map the movement of their memories and the gaps in their knowledge whilst training their bodies to fall through time.

Communing with ghosts and conjuring new futures, Voodoo asks you to pay your respects, make peace with the dead. Now lay down your defenses and dance!
