In S OR 8 a group of dancers constructs a liminal space between party and performance that explores values of leisure, labor and productivity. Their bodies become the generative force in a system of never-ending production of pleasure, collectivity, ambiguity and individual obsession, taking the need for constant progress to absurd ends.
