Scenes of discord, connection and subversion that weave a gaudy tapestry of the mind’s ability to create, distort and upend itself.
A nun, a cowboy in a field, a couple in marriage counselling and a reality show reunion.
This show is about people and the mind. The way we curate our experience from the projections and biases of our mind and the increasing and mundane voyeurism of being a person in the 21st century.
Through vignettes performed by an ensemble cast, we become the voyeurs to ourselves and the complexities and contradictions of our relationships, our internal worlds, our hopes and desires. With so much access to self and to each other, how do we connect and how do we make sense of ourselves and our behaviour?
