Everyday Claude visits his friend Lilitha (aged 11) at her home and they play for hours in the garden. They love planting things in the soil and watching them grow. They bury an apple and an apple tree grows. They bury a shoe and a shoe tree grows. Everyday Lilitha’s mother gives her a small white vitamin with her meal but for as far back as she can remember, Lilitha has been secretly collecting these vitamins and giving them to Claude who uses them to feed the soil in their garden. One day Lilitha’s mother discovers her secret and begins to force feed her daughter her vitamins. Claude and Lilitha can no longer feed their garden and it dries up. That’s when Lilitha’s world begins to fall apart.

 

WHITE RABBIT refers to the saying ‘chasing the white rabbit’ which most often refers to hallucinations under the influence of mind altering drugs or the search for a non-existent ‘truth’.

 

With strong references to what we know of ancient greek drama, WHITE RABBIT expresses through performance a view of the world from the eyes of a maladaptive daydreamer who is involuntarily forced out of her imagined reality. If reality is all perception, who has the right to determine if the reality we choose is right or wrong?
