Urban mythmaker Justin Shoulder creates a unique fusion of live performance and theatrical ceremony. Faith speaks of a God that created the angels pure and good, but subjected them to a test. Some passed triumphantly, while others rebelled and were eternally tortured in Hell. These are the devils and demons; implanting passion and obsession, they can utterly derange human faculties.
Calling to life a demon for today, the creature ‘V’ is manifest. In a ceremony of horror of the senses the theatre becomes an altar for V to revel in the beauty and contemporary idolatry and its fifteen minutes of fame.
