Urban mythmakers Justin Shoulder and collaborators create a unique fusion of hand-made craft and live performance in this spectacular theatrical ceremony. The River Eats charts the journey of Pinky – an over-caffeinated, attention-deficient demon whose identity is undergoing a fantastic metamorphosis. As Pinky’s haunted psyche unravels, we are dragged into a turbulent techno world of mirrors and estrangement.
Based on the Taoist notion that every independent entity possesses an inherent opposite, this is an evolutionary tale of instinct navigating a world of material distraction. A standout event at Melbourne’s 2012 Next Wave Festival, The River Eats is a visually stunning fable of transformation and desire. Presented by Carriageworks and Performance Space.
