Director: Nic Murphy
Synopsis: “SPICE ISLANDS is born from the last run-through, a momentary balance between rehearsal and performance. This is a moment that’s not for anybody, not even me, the director sitting on the couch in his apartment watching. It won’t last but then again it’s not supposed to, the audience is on the horizon and they’re still our purpose. But they’re not the purpose right now. Right now is no longer about cooking and it’s not yet about eating. Right now is simply about smelling this deliciously spiced soup of re-ality and dis-reality, reveling in that smell which perhaps all our noses are sniffing for.” – Nic Murphy
