Safe/Guard & Feast May 21 - 26 Green House Basement
Two visual poems created by Robert Leveroos employing found objects, movement, sound, and light. In Safe/Guard, inspired by traditional flood stories, an alchemist builds and destroys the world. Glass bottles, wooden boxes, and rubber gloves are repurposed to make your imagination spin. Feast is a dinner table battle where civility and carnal instinct butt heads in a delicate dance exploring the balancing act we play with loved ones, placing simple objects and family heirlooms centre stage in a delightfully strange visual feast. Presented as part of Upintheair Theatre's rEvolver festival.
