Unexploded Ordnances investigates unexplored potential in older people as an interactive performance which subverts traditional power structures in performance and community gathering. It is a new exploration of ageing, anxiety and ‘doomsday’ created through conversation and collaboration with an array of elders and artists, with a daring new protocol for public discussion – the Situation Room.
The piece is laced with the sense of finite endings: the nuclear doomsday from Strangelove, relationship breakdown, our own mortalities.
