FLESH OF THE GODS
Samoa House. Auckland Fringe Festival 2017.
A string of gods are taking on physical form. They are arriving for a long overdue session with a shrink. Unpacking their experience, they are trying to process how their actions and inner worlds are manifesting in the human realm.
Let’s get metaphysical.
FLESH OF THE GODS is a psychedelic dive into world mythology, a poetic feast for the mind and senses, full to the brim with philosophy and grandiose entrances.
It is an attempt to forge a mythology that speaks to our current age, where the end of times can sometimes feel all too certain.
