Worry Noise Dirt Heat is a theater and music production company dedicated to empathetic art that celebrates the anti-commercial force of creation. No Only is a musical about how Dust and Wind—from the vantage point of an earthly apocalypse—consider how life and non-life (dis)continue with or without them. Written and composed by Lane Dombois, directed by Nic Adams, performed by Sophie Zmorrod and Fernando Gonzalez, developed by Lane, Nic, Sophie, and Fernando. No Only is performed in and around an off-grid shipping container with an acoustic-guitar and synthesizer score, animations and puppetry, bodily transformations, and hope for life through the climate crisis.
