CONDUIT is an autobiographical solo performance which proposes the role of the performer as a cosmic channel and attempts to dissolve the distinctions between the mystical and the banal. The work presents a process of worlds merging, colliding, cooperating and interrupting each other. As a vehicle for navigating this quantum universe is the soloist who draws from his personal and professional archives in an attempt to create portals and bridges between dimensions and parallel realities. An ambitious and vulnerable process of expanding consciousness and riding the consequences and transformations.
