Visionaries in Arkansas claim that the moon has fallen out of its orbit — that it is heading straight for the earth, where it will collide in 24 hours. Not without a dose of humor, a pack of friends meet for a party with the theme of the end of the world, in the mad hope of short-circuiting the inevitable. The night settles and stretches, a precipice where all dreams and excesses are allowed. While the ritual was only a game at the beginning, little by little, the doubt settles in. What if tomorrow really is the end?
A choral piece, ODE questions the collective ritual of the party and the power of solidarity to resist cynicism and panic.
