In this performance Absurdum is investigating the coequally creative and destructive forces in humans through different stories of death. We follow Thelma to Hades after she has driven off the cliff in the Grand Canyon. We follow the creation of plastic bags, from ancient dead organisms, through oil and polymer, and on to convenient but overrated tools of mass suicide. We follow the North American bats, becoming victims of a sixth mass extinction caused by beauty- and fun-loving humans.
