This week at the NEO-FUTURARIUM, we went from a cast of seven to a cast of five. That’s like playing baseball with a basketball team…well, not quite, but you get the picture. Imagine if you will, being born with seven fingers on each hand. Amazing, right? But then, later on, you lose two fingers (but it’s four fingers total cus it’s two fingers on each hand that you lost. don’t ask me how). That would be pretty inconvenient right? Terrible really. You walk around for awhile with your five fingered hands and clumsily fumble with familiar objects, breaking glasses and struggling with door knobs and shoe laces. You do that for a little while. It might be tough but you get through it.
Then, one magical morning, you wake up and find yourself effortlessly opening a tightly sealed jar of raspberry preserves and POP, off goes the lid as you suddenly become aware of the extraordinary newfound strength of your five fingered hands. Were your seven little fingers ever this strong? Perhaps not. Perhaps the loss of those two beautiful fingers has made the remaining five into SUPER FINGERS.
You know what they say about losing your hearing or sight, and how the other senses grow stronger. It’s kinda like that with this. The human organism compensates with heightened awareness and sensitivity. SUPER FINGERS!
But there’s more. Did you know most all plants have the same root mass down below as they have visible plant matter above the soil. AND, when you mow your lawn, those crazy roots keeps that balance. They drop off roots. SERIOUSLY. They drop off the same mass down below the soil. AND THATS NOT ALL! (Someone told me this so I’m fairly certain its true) THEN THEY EAT IT! They use that root soup down below as a SUPER COMPOST FUEL to grow back, stronger greener and more vibrant. Just like some sort of BADASS PLANT CANNIBAL BOSS.
But worry not, dear reader. We NEO-FUTURISTS aren’t going to eat ourselves. We’re not even going to eat each other. What we are going to do is perform 10 AMAZING WORLD PREMIERS with a lean mean cast of five ART-HARDENED PERFORMANCE WARRIORS, exploring the peaks and valleys of human consciousness. Five is the new seven. You can trust us, or you can come see for yourselves.
WITH WORLD WEARY NEO-FUTUTISTS CHLOE, BILAL, KIRSTEN, DAN, AND TIF
AND THE SKILLFUL ILLUMINATION AND AUDIO SUPPORT BY THE INCOMPARABLE RACHEL STAELENS, the world may never be the same.
