Goat Ocean is an overt, fractured opera-dance.
A plainsong in movement.
A density of dance pierced through with threads of stillness.
Our activities, recognised by only a few, yet are aimed with relevance to all men. A theatre of intimate proportions. A modern piece.
Direction: Julyen Hamilton
Performers: Paolo Cingolani, Billie Hanne, Julyen Hamilton, Theodosia Stathi, Maya M. Carroll.

I have painted you in an unknown idiom,
fractured, but beautiful.
A bell chimes at the end of the minute.
Is this still a country or just a huge collection of places?
Here the check-out ladies sing Alleluliah
and the unemployed sell water in thin blue bottles.
The roots in this destroyed text.
I left a note in the trunk of a tree,
a scratch where I pissed pure graffiti
here, all the maps indicate night
but our guide will take your hands
this is all like a dream and i have a hard time
believing none of it has happened
