A team of performers employ stylised versions of the techniques of security guards and police in order to manoeuvre an audience. Viewers are progressively made to wait, then herded and removed from the performance. The final audience members are grouped together and ‘kettled’ in temporary fencing.

Nominated for a Green Room Award for Outstanding Contemporary and Experimental Performance.
