ARENA captures the intense spiraling of corporate social combat inside an ancient stone circle. Eons ago, societies built stone circles, centers of power.
Centuries later, they built cities that maintained large stone walls to enclose them. In cities now, even without those walls, we still feel the concentrated energy of many
human wills, loves, hopes, and fears. We feel the energy of how they all collide and create that urban intensity. Living in cities, we step out of our privacy into an arena of
people supporting each other, battling each other, watching each other and being watched, meeting each other, slipping by each other, taking the measure of each other.
