May is the herald of the warm months of plenty and light, and the beginning of May – the Merry Morning of May – is a rush of energy and joy. It carries us out of Winter on a great wave of colour, movement, sound, play, – and sometimes mysterious, opaque rites and ceremonies…

As a celebration of a sort of freedom, people still take to the streets, and the beginning of May has been marked in our own time with protests and unrest. People are masked and disguised – sometimes they are driven back and silenced, sometimes they break through the barriers.

in situ:’s brand-new piece takes this exuberant history of celebration and misrule, and fuses it with their own unique aesthetic and energy.
