NWR used anonymous publications, coded briefings, and pirate radio to activate self-organizing collectives willing to "inflict economic damage on those profiteering from destruction of the Earth”. Part immersive performance, part audio play, part walking tour, this roughly 60 minute single audience member ambulatory adventure is back after its sold-out run in the 2021 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
