Take a journey down the chakras to answer the universal question: “WHY AM I LIKE THIS?” Through the experience of a dream world woven from projection, music, performance and podcasts, The Squeeze examines the fractal nature of systems and patterns played out in chemistry, biology, neurology and society. Living in this world, you are just Sum Gai and Sum Gai is just like you. A saturation of information stimulation has Sum Gai questioning the origin and nature of their beliefs. In the spirit of August Strindberg’s A Dream Play and Alejandro Jodorowski’s The Holy Mountain, Sum Gai strives to rectify the scientific and spiritual, the physical and metaphysical, the chemical and alchemical. When the universe is wrung out, what fibers remain? Seven years ago, a series of DMT experiences left Clifton with some questions. This is the latest iteration of work he’s made in response. Fertile Ground productions ID[EA] (2015) and This Thing That We Made (2017) featured previous pieces of this process.
Castaway Cabaret is an experience like no other. Featuring live music, dancing, comedy, magic, burlesque, balloon animals, juggling, tight-rope walking and fire-eating, Castaway Cabaret is like a show you’d pay $130 to see in Las Vegas—only ours is entirely produced and performed entirely by a guy who spent the last eight months on a deserted island. Everybody asks how Jake provided for himself—but honestly the bigger challenge was ENTERTAINING himself. See it once, and you’ll never be bored again. See it twice, double your chances of coming on the night of a CELEBRITY CAMEO (what?!). Don’t bring kids (you can take a balloon animal home). Buy early, this show will sell out!
