Inside the Senate chamber of a global governing body, Mr. Majority introduces an “End of Ocean Bill” designed to shrink Earth’s oceans into a more manageable (and marketable) collection of inland seas. When the floor is opened for debate, the Ocean arrives to speak in its own defense…and so begins an epic Human-Ocean showdown. A world-premiere, genre-crashing music theater experience created by the Obie Award-winning company PearlDamour and featuring Obie Award-winning performer Jennifer Kidwell playing both Mr. Majority and the Ocean, Ocean Filibuster fuses myth, song, video, stand-up, and science to explore the vast depths crucial to our daily survival.
Known for award-winning site-specific works both intimate and large-scale, PearlDamour is the recipient of the 2011 Lee Reynolds Theater Award given to women theater artists who effect social change.
