ondine will be performed without an intermission.
this production contains mature themes, adult language, nudity, and sexual content.
what is the relationship between matter and form? body and soul? how do states of consciousness transfigure the form and matter of reality?
the present. because of a curse, ondine and hildebrand must stay awake for as long as they can. to do this, they start to recount their story.
the past. the alchemist and water spirit meet. and fall in love. she learns to love her newfound human form, to sleep, to bake, put sugar in her tea. and then as knights are wont to do, he sets off on a journey. mission. quest. a love story turned inside out, a fairy tale turned nightmare.
as sleep deprivation spirals their present minds into delirium, the form of the story itself breaks down.
dissonance. sequins. blood. glitter. heartbreak. hallucinations.
