Conference of Strange

Set in a world full of modern technological contraptions, where the protagonist is a confused Cyborg. Sarah Ruff uses stand-up comedy, live Art and animation to describe a
personal dilemma. She struggles to understand her ability as a creature that is able to
reproduce. She explores this notion through part recorded, real and hilarious
telephone conversations with her mother who seems to her, to have lived and existed in a forgotten age. She believes that possibly her purpose in life is not to produce a dangerous, pointless and unfamiliar offspring because the world is over populated and full of danger, she is inadequate, and life, when broken down seems meaningless. At the heart of the work is a very human, comical and tragic response to the feeling of being disenfranchised to one’s own self and to the modern world.

Conference of Strange was developed with support from Basement Brighton.
