PORTENTS (2019)

by why this sky


I performed in this formally minimalist theatre piece from why this sky that embraced conspiracy theories with a religious zeal. 


“I know I know it’s a repetitive job repetitive but I’ve taken videos, which was definitely breaking broken taken videos Safe Space and Privacy codes but I know now, it is like it is it is the Truman Show”

Travelling from deserted motorways to city streets, via daytime TV and message boards, Portents follows those people looking for meaning in the chaos. Those whose understanding of the world is completely altered by what they’ve seen.

Rising above a soundtrack of static and stutters, spanning from pop stars to apostles, why this sky present a story of conspiracy, isolation and religious rebirth.
