In Heaven People Play Peacefully Sometimes






Three micro labourers are hired to paint a mural. The only condition is that they work in unison: they must hold the brush together, dip it together, rest together.

They are hired via Task Rabbit: an app that connects casual workers to part-time jobs, or gigs. This performance imagines how a moment of solidarity might be produced within the atomising conditions of the gig economy.
