A civilization balanced precariously inside a giant cyclone has collapsed and been flung across the planet. Dorothy wakes up in a heap of rubble to find everyone dead (including Aunt Em), everything unrecognizable, and her hands missing. She manages to locate some living prosthetics belonging to a disembodied talking head with a big plan, and sets off across the wasteland with the weight of the world on her shoulders.
A butoh-infused theatrical investigation into peri-apocalyptic responsibility.
