Fiery Vortex; Singing Flavors; Dim Folk; Lots of kissing.
Welcome, Visitor – come inside. This is Dimension 317, a division of the Zoetropic Galaxy. While solar quakes foretell the coming Vortex, we prepare. Our world is not (or is it?) like yours. Masses suffer from Dimnesia - a condition that suppresses a once vibrant society into joyless dystopia. Beware the void - it seeks suppression. Here, we practice deep sensational sensing of the senses. Come. Learn. Revel in a taste like no other. It is the only way. We need you. Igniting salt, light and sense – help us - help us to survive the storm.
VoGU was inspired by a vegan Snapdragon Cuisine Honey Teriyaki Noodle Bowl + a tangerine. Hours of research into synesthesia, the anatomy of the tongue, solar storms and vortexes followed. Up sprang vibrant characters who hear flavors and taste colors. Serenity and Robin gladly embarked on adventure number three.
"You’ll never untangle the circumstances that brought you to this moment.” – Leonard Cohen
Tangled Leaves Theatre Collective grew out of a chance meeting of four like-minded women. It began as a single, short-term project that rapidly developed into a vision dedicated to creating space for female artists of all ages to share freely what is in their hearts, minds and imaginations. TLTC creates original, socially conscious work through the exploration of overlapping artistic mediums. Together, Serenity Fisher and Robin O'Neal Kissel bring words, music, compelling concepts and fascinating collaborative partners to projects. TLTC thrives on integrating eclectic groups of artists to expand and bring unlimited creative potential to their work.
