A VISUALLY ENCHANTING LIMBO CREATED FROM THE OVERABUNDANCE OF LITERAL AND METAPHORICAL DIRECTIONS

It’s a journey of a character overwhelmed by an overabundance of options as contradictions and inner conflicts manifest in vivid displays. He gets tangled up in conflicting signposts and constructs a room of moving walls and half-objects. A puzzle that embodies the intricate tapestry of human experience and a representation of a fragmented reality.

Expressed through a combination of visual theatre, object manipulation, and comical absurdity, Blueberry Burdock dances playfully in a place of limbo.

The performance inspires a newfound appreciation for life’s intricacies. Encouraging the audience to embrace the complexity of their lived experiences and celebrate the beautiful enigma of existence.
