MORE SIGNS THAN SUN
a living performance : the newest testament : a play : book : american autobiography
More Signs than Sun (MSTS) is a living document of how separation from source and the lunar reversal of the feminine principal has corrupted and enslaved society. Chronologically detailing the technological takeover of mainstream media and our every mode of communication, personifying forms to understand the mental, emotional and physical effects it has had on the human system.
An initial attempt to begin explaining and contextualizing this work to an audience.
pt I: high watt beam layer as a tantrum of love
pt II: light tunneled into thin blue lines
More Signs than Sun is a poetic, non-linear, experimental text of shifting forms—mixing elements of pop culture, dance, film, and technology with lyrical dialogue to create a world as disorientating as our own. As yet, uncategorized in form. technically, translated into 2 full length plays, written for a cast of 6, in the continuous present, without recurring scenes/characters. Distilled, the content can be best described as American, with an emphasis on the media and other forces shaping our collective psyche. an exercise in challenging, through the voice’s’ of 143 characters, what it is :
to be ‘whole’.
to embody a whole
to me, to you = as bodies = as hole, as pole

PART I: prologue
MSTS started as a storybook based off a series of ink drawings I made in 2013. This became the prologue and foundation of the play. Essentially, this details the original 'falling' of man - via separation from source and then self and others - from a contemporary lens.
