About the performance:
Amongst cosmological objects, black holes - regions in space time where the gravitational force is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape - have a special place, evoking a sense of mystery and awe for physicists and ordinary people alike.
An ordinary person begins to explore ideas from theoretical physics, delving into theories of space and time in an attempt to find a greater engagement with the Universe and with herself. As the woman struggles to understand theories and principles from Astrophysics, her personal stories, desires and dreams interrupting, and at times, colouring her understanding, the piece begins to examine our thirst for knowledge, pitted against our hunger for experience and how the two expand and limit the human understanding of the cosmos we inhabit, within and without.
