COMMON THREAD

Common Thread’s immersive walkabout act is a tale of scientists who, through haphazardly experimenting on Cordyceps mushroom spores, accidentally become ‘infected’ and mutate into hybridised fungi/human creatures. Thrilled with their new tendrilled vessels, these Common Thread creatures believe that their cross-species collaboration is the answer to the world problems as a metaphor of the symbiotic relationships intrinsic to the natural world. They spread their manifesto of man and mushroom by emulating the integration of fungi in human evolution, spreading the word in magically mystical manners, recruiting as many human field researchers as possible to carry out this mycelial mission.
