Idle, They Yammer
By Matthew TrevannionTickets
Idle, They Yammer
"Today's the day, right? That's what you said. What you prophesized. Today's the day we finish the job?"
We're all in the business of telling stories. Building narratives. Constructing meaning. To keep ourselves safe, to make sense of the senseless, to explain the unexplainable, or simply just to pass the time. But what happens when the stories we inhabit begin to crumble? How can we still manufacture hope in a world that's falling apart?
Idle, They Yammer is an ode to hard graft, a metaphysical conversation between people trapped by the very thing they've spent their entire lives building. We invite you to join us for our final reckoning at The Other Room in its current home. An ending? Of sorts. A new beginning? Almost certainly...

Audio Description [The image is a poster. The poster shows the silhouette of two builders precariously perched on a plank high above the recognizable streets of Cardiff. They are specifically overlooking Bute Terrace, where Porter’s and The Other Room are based. The builders are surrounded by silhouetted scaffolding and crisp clouds. They are looking out to the horizon where dark skies fade into burning pink.]
