Text: Poem How to Wrestle an Angel by Jacob Scheier, from his book More to Keep us Warm – ECW Press

Costume: Martha Cockshutt
Set: Dave Wilcox

“How to Wrestle an Angel” was inspired by the sculptural installations of Spanish visual artist Juan Muñoz and included two moveable sets of bleachers. The title is from a cunningly subversive poem by Jacob Scheier that dictates anti-religious anarchy in order to win a wrestling match with a celestial being.
