When I dream I dream of being separated from a dream, I dream a dream that isn’t mine, I dream dreams without me in them.
A duet for a lone woman and her iPhone, Gobbledygook is a tour de force solo performance that examines the apparatuses our lives are filtered through; the mess of signal, frequency and wire. By turns comic and introspective, this work plays out a series of fragmented scenes: a battle with Fruit Ninja, an unwelcome conversation with Mum and Dad, a strange dream.
Gobbledygook irreverently tackles the core of contemporary anxiety: is anyone listening?
