Asya Ashman & Konstantin Koryagin | Krepost

May 13 & 14, 2022, 7PM
We are in the Krepost (Fortress) of liminal states with a tempting portal in the middle. Everyone wants to be a zombie, but can’t quite become one. Imperial totems are all around. Only desperation and scientifically unproven funny little soviet devices can bring one back to life from eternal sleep. Your next step __
We stand against the war in Ukraine and Russian imperialism.
