How does sleep—or its absence—change us? At the end of another wakeful night, High Winds tears off on a hallucinatory road trip in search of his estranged half brother, led by cryptic signs and coincidences. Text,music and image combine to chart a phantasmagorical voyage through kaleidoscopic Western landscapes and vivid emotional terrain.
HIGH WINDS is a performance about a trans man whose insomnia sparks a fantastical search.
Adapted from the modern-day pillow book of the same name.
