In February this year (only 6 months ago but the Before Times seem a long way away now), I travelled down to HOME in Manchester to watch a time travelling genera bending musical/play.
And what a play it was! (My immediate reactions are HERE)
Based on the Epic of Gilgamesh – one of our earliest recorded poems (approx 2100BC) – and the modern Transhumanism movement – this is a musical with a message.
And who better to deliver that message than George Bourgeois and Maurice Maurice – two aliens from a planet you won’t have heard of (but it’s new and cool and edgy).
Here’s a demo video of one of the opending tracks from the show, to whet your appetite – Welcome to today!
They have a Kickstarter up this week – HERE – and are halfway to their goal already! Hurray!
Here are Liv and George – the creators – making their pitch!
Did I mention that I’m a bit obsessed?
And here’s a Lockdown Pride 2020 version of their touching and tender ballad classic “Gay For You”, also from Insane Animals.
Do check out the Kickstarter page! If you can’t pledge, no worries, I hope it brings a smile.
(But if it doesn’t make it’s total, I’ll be resigned to the fella singing the line ‘what’s my name-ia Mesopotamia?’ over and over again, without ever hearing the next verse!!)
