What would the world look like if the Earth’s fossil fuels had already been used up during the Industrial Revolution? That’s what we will find out in “Barrage”, set in a dystopian version of the 1930s. We take on the role of international construction companies in a highly confrontational, unforgiving race for dams, powerhouses and ever-dwindling water supplies.
Placing workers brings us new contracts and resources but the special focus is on the innovative building mechanic which reflects the time needed for large construction projects of this sort. This time is symbolised by a wheel tableau, where the action and the required resource are moved forward step by step and are blocked until released after moving.
