Rock Concert Movement #237 - Taking the audience on a Jungian journey
        into the collective unconscious by using the shadow as a metaphor for
        the primal self that gets repressed by the modern persona and also by
        using an underground setting and labyrinth office design to represent
        both the depths of the psyche and the dungeon-like isolation of our
        increasingly mechanistic society which prevents people from finding
        satisfying work or meaningful connections with others.
        It's Time to Start!
