A tragicomedy about faith, angels and waste management
Behind the big city lies an abandoned landfill, an eternal monument to decades of waste management. Its maintenance is overseen by a forgotten landfill inspector engaged in sheltered employment, also known as the “King,” along with his seasonal worker, the “Lackey,” who has grand plans to profit from methane. There is also a woman known as the “Native” who frequents the landfill and whose greatest passions revolve around archery. When a frantic employee of the Social Insurance Institution, who possesses genuinely remarkable psychic abilities, arrives at the scene, fleeing from the police, a series of events unfolds. Archangels and seraphim are encountered, faith is both believed in and tested, love is found and lives are taken, the “Icarus plan” is put into motion, and it is learned that discarded objects possess not only a history but also a soul. It is discovered that miracles are present and attainable all around us if we simply keep our senses open.
The members of the workgroup have been producing material for the artwork throughout their entire lives and have also participated in angel therapies and workshops.
Before and during the performance, the workgroup is in contact with angelic beings of light and ascended masters, conveying their loving power to the audience. Viewers may be exposed to this energy and, if desired, can draw upon it for their spiritual well-being.
