Whiplash is the newest experience from award-winning physical theatre artist, poet, and dreamer Scott Wings. A meditation on toxic masculinity, love, the human form and mental health, in a subversive world of storytelling.
In a playful odyssey through mouth, stomach, lungs and beyond, Scott balances his brain and chases his heart, while trying to keep up with the person sitting across from him on a date. In this microcosm of a moment, what anxiety, ideas, stresses, patriarchal intents, and feminist crusades occur inside of him? In a #metoo present, what must men do to hold a safe space for others? For themselves? Scott uses his iconic and eclectic milieu of physical theatre and performance poetry in an ode to the struggle for identity and self-image going on inside all of us. In a visceral, sweat-soaked performance, he plays out a battle for the body and interrogates what it means to be a good man.
