A new experimental solo performance by Harriet Gillies, exploring the control we do and do not have over our URL identities in a post-truth world. Expect a ted-talk on acid, a performative lecture on mushrooms, storytelling whilst popping nangs.
Come with me down a rabbit hole that begins as a rational exploration of the nuanced and complicated ways our identities and politics are manifested on the internet, but will probably end with me getting naked and putting something up my bum (in a really arty and compelling way).
“The Power of the Holy Spirit” is a book written by some people called George and Harriet Gillies. George Gillies is a retired Wall Street executive who, along with his wife Harriet, received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. After thirty-five years in the business world, they conducted thorough and systematic research to provide background information about how you may obtain the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. When I google my name this is one of the primary search results. I will use this book as one layer in a dense collage of styles and sources to weave a tapestry of hilariously absurd, beautiful, and paradoxical gestures, images and language.
