Society as we know it depends on a plentiful supply of cheaply available Crude Oil. The challenge of Peak Oil Production, and subsequent diminishing reserves is steeped in uncertainty. It is not known when the oil will run out, nor is it known what will happen when this occurs. Many things currently taken for granted, from cheap flights to plastic containers, will have to be dispensed with or totally reinvented.

WILL WE FLY WHEN THE OIL RUNS OUT? is a one-off instance of Performance Architecture, which will take place at 2 pm, Sunday 23rd of August, 2009, at 3a Worcester Road, Malvern (next to the corner with St. Anne's Road).

The performance will attempt to engage with uncertainties of depletion, and its aftermath will be on display until September 12th, 2009.
