Two families flee in slow-motion from an impending storm. Faces locked in expressions of fear, limbs twisting as they struggle away from what's coming, the families move horribly slowly, as if through mud. But despite their red wagon and carefully packed suitcases, these are not human families: they are families of fish. Dressed as dapper 40's families but with fish heads, the performers in "Evacuation" call to mind the horrible mass movements caused by World War II but pertain directly to the types of evacuations we are forcing upon our marine life today.
