The Hang is a ritual celebration of queerness, questions, and the eternity of a moment.  Rooted in the jazz tradition and operatic form, it imagines the final hours of the life of Socrates, as he asks his friends to use every moment left to think on virtue.  What transpires is a centuries-long communal consideration, full of jazz, dance, debates, and queer romps.
