Otherworld Theatre Company and Tiresias present a one-night-only special event: HYPERFANTASIA!
HYPERFANTASIA is a sci-fi fantasy drag cabaret about the proliferation of matter in the universe and life on planet Earth. Featuring original music and projections, this miniature epic draws on new evolutionary theories and ancient queer wisdom to dismantle the survival-of-the-fittest paradigm toward an ethic of abundance and extravagance. Hosted by Tiresias, the blind prophet of the Underworld, HYPERFANTASIA includes a reenactment of the Big Bang as a celestial orgasm, a heartfelt ode to our prehistoric unicellular bacterial ancestors, and a dance choreographed using movements of birds-of-paradise during mating rituals.
HYPERFANTASIA is created by Evan Silver, who also stars as Tiresias. The show features a guest performance by Xo Carrington. Silver also writes and directs, and composed the show’s original score.
HYPERFANTASIA runs approximately 45 minutes.
All attendees including audience members, media, staff and volunteers, and performers are required to show proof of full vaccination or a negative PCR test result within 72 hours of the show date, and masks are required to be worn over the mouth and nose at all times, unless actively eating or drinking.
