Gnarled Roots of a Creation Theory is a performance named for a fabled PhD thesis by an Australian businessman who claims to be anonymous Bitcoin inventor Satoshi Nakamoto. Twenty-first century mythology is at the centre of this broad, complex and chaotic piece, with the September 11 attacks in New York its origin story. Gnarled Roots explores the mediated experience of 9/11, by looking at the falling towers as a cataclysmic, theatrical mega-event in the ontology of all of the stories of the Western world.
