Step into a world of constant self-refinement. Two performers engage in a continuous verbal scuffle, bringing streams of empty promises into a gradually saturated space. Filled with voices and bodies, everything slowly crumbles into a non-place, stripped of meaning, of truth.
Absolutely, Awesome, Affirmative is a radical new project from Nic Green, exploring how we believe – in fact, in nature, in truth, and in ourselves – and how that belief can be targeted, twisted, and shaped into whatever we want it to be. Part TED talk, part shopping channel special, part showbiz hypnotism, the stage becomes a post-truth world of opulent theatricality, visual flair, and driving soundscapes.
In a world drowning in a flow of news, expert opinions, and more-or-less believable facts, is there any real meaning left? Or does everything stand completely void, lone symbols of the things they once signified?
Part of the Take Me Somewhere Festival
