Scraps is a dystopia-inspired piece that begins in  slow, regimented tideum and an almost completely black space. Evolving into a twisted tale, touching on aspects of survivalist instinct and greed, the unveiling of one brilliant light becomes at once an awakening presence and a inresistable need. Initial alarm and apprehension give way to urgent desire as the three compete for possession. Light and the lack thereof play upon the audience's senses and create a mood where you're sure to feel you've entered into a troubled world.
