Short Description
Space Invaders (IMPINGE: Concerning Difference)
Sean Tobin

When it comes to the performance itself, Alvin is also weary of impinging on his audience and hopes instead to incorporate them as collaborators. Alvin and The Necessary Stage have moved away from "propagandistically" trying to empower minority groups, instead empowering the imaginations of the audience at large, allowing them to draw their own conclusions. He adds that "...all works invade the space of the audience but this is debatable because we do not force people at gun-point to buy a ticket. As the work goes on, they can still resist what they encounter on stage."

"There is a small space opening up," says Alvin. "Dance like Mad!"
"Dance like mad cows!" adds Haresh.
