DESCRIPTION

SISTER SYLVESTER is delighted to present its latest performance/play/song and dance number PLAY AMERICA.

The piece follows a group of kids at a party and the motivational speaker who tries to save them from their misguided romances and spiritual malaise. The performance incorporates a physical vocabulary taken from by 90’s pop music videos, and a system of audience-dependant triggers inspired by John Cage and chance operations.

Pre-performance exhibition and Post-performance party - BYOB.

Exhibition opens at 7pm, performance begins at 8pm.  Fri-Mon.
