You have night and you have day…

Dancing Monkey Laboratories, in association with the Interdisciplinary Kolleg ‘Karl Nimeni’: Nature and Culture of the Night (Germany) Presents:
KARL NIMENI IS NOT DEAD – I KILLED KARL NIMENI, a Night Play and Theatrical Poem

Charles Fleming is in crisis; nothing makes sense or allows him to follow the flow of existence. Being is becoming difficult. We meet him in a jail cell, charged with the murder of Karl Nimeni. The only evidence against him is a dream. He speaks to the audience or the jury or his god or himself. His reality has been compromised by his own dreams. We learn that he believes he is innocent because Karl Nimeni has murdered him. On this nocturlogical journey we meet different versions of Karl Nimeni as understood by Charles, a man he might have never met, and a Dancer who represents a primitive longing in Charles, beyond rationality and logic.
