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
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
i felt it
in my loins.
i felt it
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."
