One teacher. Five students. Five desks. The Desk is a powerfully compelling physical theatre piece about a hierarchical, disciplined community.

Director Reetta Honkakoski mines her personal lived experience of a cult to explore the seductive power of groupthink and to shed light on spiritual and political groups offering a structured worldview, hope and security.  The Desk is a precise ensemble piece which exposes the universal mechanics of power in an entirely wordless performance.
