In Floods is a new show by Greg Wohead that takes the form of a live screenplay reading in which Greg fictionalises himself. Drawing from an interest in the act of crying and his experience returning to rural America for his grandparents’ back-to-back funerals, he leans into TV tropes, plays fast and loose with the truth and deals recklessly with his memories.

With In Floods, Greg asks himself: can you go home again and who are you when you get there? What makes us, breaks us or sustains us as life gets more and more absurd? The responses to these questions play out through blinding light, total darkness, wild anecdotes, out of body experiences and lumps in the throat.

Artist biographies

Greg Wohead is a writer, performer and live artist originally from Texas, living and working between Lisbon and London. Greg draws on a range of references and interests including the instability of autobiography; the currency, images and emotional hitpoints of TV and film; the weirdness of reenactment and the wicked fun of fan fiction.
