Expressed as one large breath, AGORA II (the sequel to Agora) further explored treatments of the pool site's vast architecture by combining ideas of collectivity with layers of audience interventions, cameo appearances by guest artists and a meshed collaboration with 75 performers: dancers, actors and live musicians. All creating a grand tableau - a city slice - a social experiment - Mapping the multiple layers of urban life's most visceral narratives, together inside the pool basin.
