Sex, Cynicism and Other Small Miracles
Sex, Cynicism and Other Small Miracles
Lachlan the Bray, Australian spoken word artist, has teamed up with Bay Area poet and musician Garrett Riley to create a one of a kind performance of spoken word bedlam.

They explore what it means to live in the year, 2015AD. Why rent will cost you a kidney, why love is fleeting, how our dependence on pharmaceuticals will slowly kill us; and why each and every one of these things is beautiful. Accompanied by a musical trio, led by bassist Tyden Binsted, they tell a story befit for our befuddled generation.

The performance runs approximately eighty minutes. The original incarnation was chosen as Red Lips +W Production Company’s inaugural production and ran at the Exit Theatre’s main stage in San Francisco. The second production was a one-night only, sold out performance with a live band in Kempsey, Australia.

The show now aims to recreate the style of the second production and adapt it for live music venues around the Bay Area.
