A continuation of ‘The Crawl’ 2016 where performers crawled through the city streets like spiders in suits. Their bodies animalistic - moving together in a pack. The robotic movements of commuters at rush hour seems so structured and mechanical . Is the movement of our bodies together a natural instinct? or something created within modern society. Its body vs the city, Animal vs machine. The suit is the costume of the city - The symbol of time passing, the symbol of labour and movement.
