Part sci-fi, part thriller, part love story. Welcome to the dystopian world of American Carnage: A Love Story.
AMERICAN CARNAGE: A LOVE STORY written and directed by Aimee Greenberg , November 10, 2017, City Heights Performance Annex, San Diego.
An unlikely love story - part sci-fi and part thriller . . . AMERICAN CARNAGE: A LOVE STORY pulls back the curtain on a future where high technology manifests organically within humans and manufactured beings. The play introduces “YML” from an evolved species who is accidentally exposed to echoes of late Second Millennium arts and culture which trigger feelings he didn't expect to have . . . how else could an octobot know a song he has never before heard? Delilah and her brother are in the Badlands desperately trying to evade the Guards sent from a narcissistic mad leader who has a blind and seemingly devoted daughter - it’s a tale of alternate worlds examining the idea of what is human, where are the boundaries when senses have been removed. The surprising sweetness of YML as he navigates from one world to the other is encouraging and touching . . . can experimental beings cross over to a world of feeling in a society where feelings have been lost? AMERICAN CARNAGE: A LOVE STORY presents a dystopian look at a future shaped by current events.
