A Wicked Pack Of Cards
A performance that was originally based upon T.S. Eliot’s epic poem The Waste Land, A Wicked Pack Of Cards became a poem in its own right. Now it's a series of performances. It features film, live performance, music and A Wicked Pack of Cards. The performances are exercises in urgency. They are rituals, modern-day liturgies for the business-pagans and techno-heathens.
