The poem Unflooded is from an extended poetry play called Eucapocalypts Now which was co-written with Aaron Kirby. The full performance, plus a deconstruction of our current ecological predicament, will be showing at the You Are Here festival in March 2015.
While it is relatively easy to imagine everything rapidly falling apart, or a tech-infused continuation of our consumer lives, it remains difficult to imagine a more nuanced future in which society, sometimes happily and sometimes painfully, gradually grinds through what remains of Earth’s resources until it peters out. Eucapocalypts Now makes an attempt to grasp that nuance.
