promiscuous/cities - CANCELLED
by Drew Echberg
By Lachlan Philpott. Directed by Alyson Campbell.
They’ve written endless songs about this city.
Can you feel the street’s pulse, how it rushes through your veins like a drug?
He’s in trouble, she’s falling in love, they’re cheating, she’s trapped and he’s alone.
But keep moving since we mustn’t fall behind.
Stay connected- don’t want to miss out.
promiscuous/cities composes a symphony of a night in a big city where each of us is frantically maintaining the myth we’ve created of ourselves. Yet underneath the vision we peddle on social media – like! – there is an aching distance between us.
Playwright Lachlan Philpott asks: How can we know a city when we don’t even know ourselves?
This Australian premiere is performed by a group of actors just graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts, who have had few opportunities for public performances during their training and made this show for no live public audience. It’s hard to think of a group more attuned to the play’s concerns with the relationship between online and embodied life, connection and missed connections.
