Solo for 15 mics and a popcorn machine

Requiem for an it-girl

Fly girl has given up the fight in the “enchanted circle”. Like Icarus, she burned her wings trying to reach the sun. Disillusioned, she knows that the mountains of sweet snow in Yaksu Exit Number 9 won’t get anyone high anymore. MCH is once again alone on stage for the last opus of her trilogy. A silent and disturbing sphinx, she lies languidly next to a popcorn machine. Then she crawls back up again.

A new transformation – carmine dress and golden hair – and the whirlwind starts again in a last twist before the agony. MCH gets lost in an unhealthy zapping, where identity is nothing but a decoy, where everything transforms. Exposed, it empties itself of its substance. The only other presence in her solitary world, pitched voices, are nothing but extensions of her own identity that bursts out. Decomposition. She no longer exists. Madness sets in, irreversible. She dances for these faceless, immaterial voices, dying of love and then saving her lover from Death. MCH in a lascivious dance, and redemption in the world of MCH. The only thing that remains is the radiant popcorn machine that mechanically vomits its overflow onto a devastated world.
