"Embarrassed of the Whole" is an opera of operations.
Operated across 20 formal seminar/thinktank/focus group/rehearsal process/workshops that conclude with dinner, the work learns from itself how to socially engineer its own construction via the processing of persons.
Participants will work with PPL to practice 5 operations. Bring instruments, or just your voice and body.
