A lo-fi solo symphony of words and movement. Conjuring the ghosts of the men who have dominated the stage before him, Will takes us on a journey — navigating the tensions of inheritance, privilege, and addiction.
Personal and political. Unsettling and humorous.
What do you see when you look at Will?
Set against a backdrop of a nation that continues to bask in the light of its colonial legacy, hooked on profits despite the costs, White Sun collides with the past in the here and now of a human nervous system.
CONTENT WARNING: 14+
Addresses themes of addiction and the social construct of race; makes direct references to the transatlantic slave trade, and gives descriptions of addictive behaviours.
