Maybe Later Commedia Dell'ong Black

- Midsumma Festival

 

Inside the walls of an ordinary apartment, a run-of-the-mill, everyday relationship is taking place. Two bodies share the space; walking the line between comfortable symbiosis and crippling co-dependency.

They have a to-do list and plenty of time to-do the list… so why is nothing getting done? 

Maybe Later is a one act duet between two unnamed figures. We witness a day in the life inside their studio apartment, a microcosm of the world outside; the shifting grounds of power and control, the delicate oscillation between obsession and addiction, the slow creep of nihilistic dread emanating from our culture of information overload.  

The audience witnesses a familiar domestic scene through a contorted lens. Narrators are untrustworthy, events are cloudy, reality is opaque. In this simple dissection of an ordinary day, we discover how our real fears and anxieties can infiltrate our most comfortable and private moments. What really goes on when nothing goes on? Little fights, big fights, procrastination, contemplation, masturbation, confrontation. We see all that wasn’t meant to be seen by all. 

Maybe Later appeals to the innate struggle to find meaning in a world overrun by conflicting opinions, how we interact publicly vs privately vs anonymously, our self-construction of anxiety within greater societal structures and who or what we lean on for comfort.
