Alien Flower In Fundamentalist Fields
Supported by MI5CHIEF MAKERS and REBEL DECIBEL SOUNDSYSTEM
WHAT IS THE STORY?
Alien the flower wakes up in a government rehabilitation centre. She is there to be treated for her non-compliance and insanity. Is she crazy or is it just a crazy world?
Using an arsenal of poetry, dramatic dialogue, film, movement and song, Alien Flower In Fundamentalist Fields is the second one-woman show written and performed by multidisciplinary artist Deborah Emmanuel.
