Beth sits at a laptop late at night, typing away to a faceless society. Slowly, her facade of humanity melts, uncovering the inner cruelty she inflicts upon others and herself. Focusing on the destructive nature of relentlessly driven people encumbered with everyday failure, DEAD PEOPLE fuses together elements of surrealism, dance, horror and cinematic video projections, to uncover the darkness inside us that emerges when the lines of reality begin to deteriorate.
