Witch Please presents: FISHY

— The Cube
A fantastical queer imagining of a chemical afterlife
time:19:30
price: Tickets Below

Information:

just before we curl up in our dens, entrances guarded by the white lace fringing of winter's icy dribble... before the sea freezes over, before that which moves is revealed in stillness, before the light dims to the point where it can no longer penetrate our murky depths... we offer you a night of contemplation, of queer bodies, synthetic cryptozoology and non-human advocacy. an opportunity to attune ourselves to the chimeric spirit of the anthropocene. they say we know less of the ocean floor than we do of the moon's tidal face. join hands and prepare for the bends as we travel downwards, darkwards.

the usual w.plz vibes will be emanating throughout the nite, but we'll be finishing at the downright sensible time of midnight. our parties proper return in february, as we crack open the false egg of discontinuity with DESIRE.

FISHY is a show about plastic pollution. It is a fantastical queer imagining of a chemical landscape where life is evolving into surreal new forms.

From Edythe Woolley, winner of Man Up 2017, The Glory’s Drag King competition and performer at Buzzcut, SPILL and Camden People’s Theatre, FISHY is a playful and bizarre exploration of the effect plastic pollution will have on our world, our oceans and our bodies. Edythe last graced the Cube stage in May 2017, diving knife-first into flesh-addled femininity with Did You Get That From Your Mother?

Someone fished a fish once.
And found 17 bits of plastic in it.
If you cut me open
you’d find plastic in me too.

As time passed the ocean
turned (like my insides)
from water
to a thick plastic soup.

With no fresh food bloated fishes
floated to the ocean’s jello surface
with their stomachs
turned up.

My stomach was aching.
The earth’s storms became constant.
Winds whipped the congealed ocean surface
throwing the dead fish and plastic dregs
up into the dark and wild skies

In the depths below the untamed, synthetic waves
something stirred.
I felt it in my loins
I felt it clawing,
crawling into
the future.

Maya Sherpa: Coexistence

In 2016, the worst bleaching event on record caused the whole northern section of the Great Barrier Reef to bleach. The largest living space on Earth is fast deteriorating. MONKEYBRAIN may have an insight into the causality of this…
