Two figures dressed in white, electronic music and a drifting voice sending Yung Hurn’s dreams of and appeals to togetherness – “Baby, you wanna chill and stuff / Fly with me through Vienna and stuff ”– as well as the effect of pills into space in a loop.

“The performance creates a powerful and cohesive effective field that nonetheless permits a wide variety of responses to coexist: delight, stupor, impatience, awe, reverie, and, for me, a moment of pure adrenalized thrill.”
Philip Gates, Contemporary Performances (New York), January 2019
