VENUS IN GEMINI
Created and Written by Kirsten Harvey & Eleanor Robb
Directed by Kedian Keohan
Performed by Kirsten Harvey & Eleanor Robb
Dramaturgy by Sam Miller
Twin astronauts prepare to travel to Venus, for what would be the first government mission to the planet's surface. While in pre-flight quarantine, they have a strict routine: wake up, training, tests, pills, sleep. Within the monotony and faced with the unpredictability of space exploration, they begin to see glimpses of the deceptive nature of the project. Time, reality, quantum mechanics, and black holes shift to the forefront as they begin to discover their true purpose as they launch into the unknown.
Selected as part of the 2020 Exponential Theatre Festival in Brooklyn.
