MAYURI: A One-Woman Sci-Fi Show
August 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Following an existential crisis, Mayuri leaves her human life behind, befriends the android Riza and has her mind transferred into a machine. Alienated by humans and robots alike, she embarks on a haunting journey of self-discovery, violence and despair… Her life keeps changing while a cult starts following her like a god.
Mayuri is a one-woman sci-fi play for a goddess and a priest; a dystopian storytelling experience; a sermon for the Cult of Mayuri on a strange island in the Mediterranean Sea.
