Camping is an experiential performance and survival guide to a drastically changing world where everything is in motion, everything burns, compasses spin and volcanoes erupt. The sun is always a different color, the food tastes strange, the fossils feel warm and something is approaching.

In this world, two children camp at the edge of the unknown together with the audience and let questions, feelings and objects approach them. The camp grows, maps are drawn up, a spa is built.

Camping was born from a desire to prepare for something that cannot be prepared. Everything that can be imagined happens in the performance, however everything will work out. There is something horrible and something comforting in the work and even though it has many endings nothing ends completely.
