Springboard: Fruits, or the Decline of a Distant Memory

A dive into the universal subconscious

A neo-cabaret performance exploring the anxiety of constantly trying to fit in and adjusting in society from the perspective of first-generation migrants. 

Fruits or, The Decline of a Distant Memory is a neo-cabaret performance from the trenches of humanity about the fruitless attempts of finding love.

Who are we now, swimming within a universal subconscious, attempting to find freedom? 

A journey toward the light within that’s slowly running out of electricity.

A push to reignite the true self.

Stuck in the midst of space and time three entities are searching for meaning. There’s a smell of longing in the air and we’re falling through oblivion. Through a series of apparently disconnected vignettes, they navigate by morphing into various shapes. This is ultimately a love story between the self and its reflection. Electric and infantile flavours of sweet and bitter collapse.

Ages 16+ Contains Strong Language, Adult Themes and Graphic Images.


Performers and Text Mimmi Bauer, Pat Dynowska, Michal Szpak

Scenography Helen Hebert

Musical Composition Jack Foran

Direction and Lighting Design Theodor Spiridon

“Its nonsensical nature is uniquely neat and presents a disillusioned view of life that's resounding of the modern societal crisis and feels the aftermath of the overwhelming effects of the world.” Broadway World
