FADO presents a new work by Cindy Baker in the context of I (2022), an annual 12-hour event, curated and organized by Christof Migone.

Each year the event moves through each word of the 12-word phrase “you and I are water earth fire air of life and death” and activates the word of the year in a myriad of ways. This year the word is ‘I’, consequently the focus is on selfless selves, linked Is, and not-Is.

Performance Yellow

This fragrance opens us to the question, has the show started? It's winter, the theatre is colder than the street and the room is filled with people and all their winter smells: wet faux leather, down, too much shampoo, and beer breath. The atmosphere is a trickster. Am I late, am I early?
