it’s not the sea to drink is a one-person-hyper-pop-extended-technique opera, using mistranslated idioms as its verbal matter. Through them, an eruption of anxieties arises, all directed towards the issue of being watched. Playing with these anxieties and the concept of failure, the show questions what it means to perform. It follows one character as they try to stop the sun from setting, creating a space for the disorganised and those who find this disciplinary system of time too constricting.
We are becoming, shedding skin, losing hair, transforming and being transformed, but what happens to the things we lose, the selves left behind? It’s not the sea to drink tries to stop this process of change; failing constantly in a part clown, part robot Britney Spears manner. The show is a celebration of failure, of rejecting over-productive Late Capitalist time – with an original hyper-pop backing track 😛 x
