A one woman millennial siren song written and performed by Elizabeth May
Directed by Lindsey Hope Pearlman
Equal parts 90's pop music video, horny TED talk, and honest confession, Zodiac Math is an evening of intimate storytelling, scored by anachronistic alt-pop. Elizabeth May is bright, vulnerable, and always searching for the missing half of a broken heart best friend necklace. May sings a millennial’s siren song, performing original electronic and acoustic music. Driven by family folklore of a childhood death curse, May explores questions of sexual identity and twin magic. She lays herself bare in a dark comedic ritual that transforms the audience into her imaginary friends. Because, like, what is reality anyway?
