"How To Survive The Apocalypse" is an evolving
project created mainly with Erik Davis the writer. Christopher
Fulling has been acting as the script consultant and artistic
director of the work.
I began this project for a number of reasons, one of the
strongest was my interest in "festival culture".
In the NW we have a number of these festivals, Burning Man,
The Oregon Country Fair are the ones I'm most familiar with.
At the festivals there is a real sense of community and communal
energy. The idea is that there is a HUGE void in our American
lifestyle for this sort of intense social interaction and
that these festivals are the heart and soul of a lot of counterculture.
It's a big job to try and put it into "theater"
but we're trying. We'd really like to tour the show with a
caravan during the spring and summer, but would also do it
in a proper theater, given the opportunity.
The Demo is mainly me on voice, but also features Julie Lewis
and Mark Growden on voice, and George Scott as Gene Jeanie.
