They are connected and separate. They have memory and dreams. They have each other. They are also alone.  It smells like wet earth. It tastes like something just died. The music is metal in your mouth, refined. Sometimes it’s funny. They are women – did I say that? I didn’t because it’s not important. But maybe it is.

Don your frontiersman’s helmet for this comedic journey to the black heart of the earth’s ecological crisis. There you will see uncanny landscapes, Norman cows, and perhaps, if you are lucky, you may just meet three women from far flung countries who are stuck. in the muck. WTF. Watch as competing political agendas paralyse and liberate them in turn and ever-changing information gives way to hybrid forms and cosmic foul play. Part art installation, part immersive Absurdist theatre ‘stuck’ uses clown, rhetoric and soft sculpture to examine cultural entrenchment around climate change.
