The six individual solos that were part of MOPA – Preparing for battle, have here been collected into a single solo in the form of a volatile rapmusikal or a lecture in rhyme where the stage design lends itself to installation and projection surfaces. The show deals with concepts such as voice, multiple bodies and the agency and potential of darkness
