What do you do when you see a man throwing stones at some target? And what do you do when you find out that the target is a duck sitting on her eggs? How do you react?

The charismatic Australian performer Nicola Gunn has taken this real-life situation and transformed it into an action-filled visual contemplation. Critically, yet with comic exaggeration, she analyses certain unbearable aspects of human behavior, and the moral aspects of the initiating scenario, which she herself confronts in an entirely disarming way. The multi-layered performance is full of humor and digressions as well as critical and philosophical theories, oscillating between the superfluous and the inappropriate, between the comical and things that are particularly emotional. In her works, Nicola Gunn, a performer, writer, director, and dramaturge, links performance, art, and anthropology in order to explore the fragility of human existence through subversive humor.
