Nazareth Hassan’s Untitled (1–5), the first play in his series called “This much nothing,” is an exploration of opacity. The rhythms of language and choreography take on a central role in the piece as performers’ bodies become sculptural, their figures and forms fractured and exalted.​​​​​​​

"Hassan has written a Black litany that is also a Black liturgy. Untitled. (1-5) is a chanting down of Babylon without and Babylon within. It takes the staccato collapses of composure under duress, and drums them into a crazy rhythm. This is a chant that wields laughter against comedy, but preserves the humor within the grotesque. It gradually builds sound into a wave that crashes over any remaining threadbare notions of a sovereign self."
