About the Event

•´¯`•. F𝕀ş𝔥𝕐 .•´¯`•

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

into the future

FISHY is an anarchic, visually stimulating solo performance that explores the effects of plastic pollution on our oceans and bodies. With original compositions by the NYC based artist Lucy Lie, FISHY is a fantastical queer imagining of a future landscape, where life morphs into surreal new forms and chemicals intermingle with slippery substances. Edythe has created a never seen before dreamy, grotesque oceanic world.

FISHY recently played to packed houses at The Yard Theatre’s NEXT Festival, London and The Cube’s Witch Please, Bristol. The show is supported by The Yard Theatre, Queen Mary University and Arts Council England.

"The imagery was stunning, every single moment had meaning and really makes me think how disconnected we are from the effects of our wastefulness."

“Haunting and gorgeous"

“Epic”
