Jurius, Khan and Orrechia play vinyl sets and share tracks from extensive personal collections. Artists Breeze Yoko and Kemang Wa Lehulere (drawing and painting), and Maliq Ntone Edjabe (movement), make spontaneous contributions alongside the performances.

Visuals and sounds by Dathini Mzayiya and Thokozani Mthiyane (drawing and painting).

Apocalypse Pantry (Zayaan Kahn and Heather Thompson) serve knowledge and nutrition through the temporary ‘Concocktails v.002’, a selection of hot and cold drinks made with foraged herbs, spices and fynbos tinctures.
