WHEN LIFE IS A STATE OF MIND, IT'S THE THOT THAT COUNTS...
Reagan Esther Myer is a multimedia performance using live music, video, and theater to tell a dystopian narrative. In a post-WW3 world, we meet Reagan, a government employee living in an abandoned shopping mall on a deserted island making DIY survivalist videos for a struggling world. Like most people who survived Impact, she has a government-issued ThotBot, a brain implant that algorithmically applies points to one's thoughts, an effort most survivors undertake in order to accrue Value toward a favorable Redemption. Several events occur that cause her to question her thoughts, memories, and reality: she is tasked with creating an unusual tutorial video for the benefit of the government, the sister she thought long-dead calls and asks for help, and she finds a Blockbuster Video return box filled with contraband, that is, movies from a pre-Impact world.
