The Flying Nun presents: Whitney and Me, by Harriet Gillies, Hugh O'Connor and Lucas Jervies.
Google says, "The psychodynamic core of addiction is the repetition-compulsion, i.e. the addicts repeat the same self-destructive behaviours over and over, in spite of their personal resolve not to do it."
Experience this feedback loop of Whitney Houston fandom and YouTube hysteria where Lucas mimics, morphs and manipulates a 4 minute Whitney Houston video into an hour-long, low-budget spectacular.
Everything disintegrates. All that remains is Whitney.
Come to the Whitney Houston Addicts Anonymous meeting and be complicit in the bad behaviour.
The Flying Nun is a showcase of the outcomes from Performing Arts residencies with Brand X at the East Sydney Community and Arts Centre.
By its very nature, we celebrate the fringe, alternative and contemporary counter-culture, contributing multi-disciplinary creative risk-taking to the East Sydney Creative Precinct. Come and be the first audience to witness new work fresh out of the rehearsal room and by doing so, support Independent Artists with income and feedback to propel the work on to stages across Sydney.
