Screening: The Goldfish Casino

This splashy queer musical about Salmon migration, Water Wars and the uprising of an emergent water commons is adapted from a play written by poet/theorist July Hazard. The journey of The Salmon transports the audience to the surreal constructed landscape of The Gold Fish Casino where she must gamble her eggs for enough water to pass upstream to spawn. In her struggle, the Salmon encounters a menagerie of downtrodden and displaced River Creatures as well as the menacing yet tuneful Army Chorus of Engineers.
As a storm brews in the distance, the Water Tycoon shuffles in for a cataclysmic showdown.
Will the Salmon and her fellow creatures rise up? Or will it all go down the drain?
The film features a queer and trans ensemble of artists, activists, plumbers and scientists. Rife with double entendre, musical numbers and stunning art direction, The Gold Fish Casino conjures a world at once fantastical and eerily familiar.

 

Following the screening, director Sarolta Jane Vay, science consultant and performer, Cleo Woelfle-Erskine, and playwright July Hazard will gather for a lively conversation with the audience about their collaborations through the lenses of art, environmental, and queer practices and ideologies.
