A tragicomedy of the unfelt in 2 parts: In the post-apocalypse a couple hopes to see their mute daughter, and a plane crash victim waits for the birth of the post-post-post. More…
In this apocalyptic puzzle, a couple in a laboratory/kitchen collects ash and tries to stay awake, hoping to see their mute daughter again. Outside dead bodies lie on the shore, a slow-motion plane crash victim awaits the birth of the post-post-post, and the hiding sun creates confusion and chaos. Can they all find a way to survive, make meaning, or even escape?
"A quick firing collage of absurdist clues to find your way through the maze of each moment. Reality, rules, linear, logic are to be left at the door...'Black Water' by Sylvia Bofill and 'Yovo' by Robert Lyons are the text trampolines that set the cast bodies to hyper speed. The performers wrap their skin, teeth, sinews and souls around the words like pigs in a blanket...It incites the delicious idea of, 'what rules will you break today?'" Full Review
