The Seed Eaters, created by artist Emily Mast, musician Linda Edsjö and myself, is a deconstructed play made for three strangers about the tragic cycles that connect us. Scenes—at times highly theatrical and routine—unfold on a series of sculptural sets. Over the course of the evening, players continually switch roles, languages, and dramatic modes to form an ecstatic and fragile portrait of our relationships.
