In the forest (greater London metropolis), omen[act0] begins with witches messaging prophecy and prediction. Inside the castle, classic and contemporary tales of remorse[act1], betrayal[act2] and overthrow [act3] unfold. Each act is realized by collaborating visual, sound and performance artists making use of all mediums, elaborating operatic manoeuvre into an escalating scheme of conspiracy and its contemporaneous political manifestations.

Outside the castle, the mobile forest, electronically updated with antennas, electronic magnetic waves, geolocation, armed with bytes and pixels, signals and slogans, is assembled for simulated insurgency measures. Mobilized urbanites, empowered by free network emissions, carry the camouflage tree antennas, in a spider-shaped movement, towards the Castle Central. As the sheer strength of signals forces an entry into the Castle, a final merging of forest and castle occurs during the act4 - Insurgency; a moment of downfall, jubilation and loss. The act of eternal return[act5] brings us back to [act0]omen set admist a dusted, ruined castle.
