Antarctica is being colonized as one of the last hospitable places on earth. 11 people born there in the last century are called ‘home’ to stake a future land claim.

An immersive and durational work incorporating installation, film, textiles and performance, Antarctica draws on speculative fiction to explore issues of climate change, colonialism, and disability justice.

conceived and created by Syrus Marcus Ware

Antarctica is a 3 hour durational piece, patrons are welcomed to stay for the full duration of the piece or come and go as they please.
