Ketamine: The Musical to hit New York art centre later this month
Singing, dancing and special K.
*5 minutes into musical* "I thought we were seeing Cats?"
- "No, sorry Mum. You must've misheard. I said Kets."
In what is certain to be world first, a musical about your non-supermarket variety of special K is hitting Brooklyn's House Of Yes this month. Ketamine: The Musical is a one hour, 15 minute long showing, described by show organisers as: "an immersive, participatory and dissociative spectacle". While that brief and extremely cryptic description leaves a great number of questions unanswered, there's no doubting that Ketamine: The Musical has people intrigued; with House Of Yes having to add two additional dates on the back of ticket sales, after originally only booking for one evening. House Of Yes did offer further insight into what one might expect from a musical about one of the world's most popular (and occasionally terrifying) dance-floor drugs, stating: "You will not be able to unsee, unhear or unfeel the things that you will see, hear and feel. Profound and numbing, time will stand still as circus, dance, balloons, horses, clowns, sugar and music, so much music, swallow you hole. You will be educated and entertained. You will leave a changed human being." While circus acts and clowns are two of the most utterly unappealing things one could encounter after a couple of bumps of K, Ketamine: The Musical definitely has people intrigued, so fingers crossed we'll see it make its way over to Aus in time.
