FUCKING WITH SUNSHINE

fucking with sunshineThe light is no mystery; the mystery is that there is something to keep the light…from passing through [– Richard Siken.]

 

What is the world’s most valuable commodity? What happens when a meaning making monkey decides they are more than just a shoelace on the gigantic superstring of the universe, that ghosts have hair, and that doors and nouns and skinny jeans stop movement more than they’re meant to? Who’s making the rules in the world of dangerously young revoluationaries’ force fields and how does the Generation Z of Aotearoa journey through the abyss of absurd undoings, armed to the eyeballs with transcendence-visioned glasses, a tachycardia of hope and the impending socio-ecological heart attack? And is there any hope for two polymath-activists obsessed with the 21st century’s greatest challenges more than each other, one of whom only wants to mix spirits and the other of whom seeks sex as the escape? It’s a bizarre and scary planet, and we don’t seem to be doing a good job taking care of it – from swallowing wooden spatula and chatting avidly to Tibetan monks in foreign countries, hails a glimpse of Nalini’s life as a complex systems thinker, romantic and artivist. A little more than fascinated with sunshine and baby grand pianos, this performance-poetry inspired kaleidoscope will feature movement, projections and sound and other special effects to take audiences through the quirks and quarks and light-like quanta of trying to break boundaries in a world so determined to gouge out more.

First performed at final night of Page2Stage 2013 @ The PumpHouse Theatre. Created and performed by Nalini Singh. For more info and bookings please contact gus@printablereality.com or naprasingh@gmail.com
