Martuni lives in a tower. He views the world by day and night through a periscope, weaving steadily what he sees into a tapestry. He does not know whether there is a curse upon him, but ignores the climate crisis outside, using obsessive rituals and a hook-up app to escape his anxiety.
One day he falls in love and his unravelling begins.
The Gentleman of Shalott is a queer, dystopian adaptation of Tennyson’s poem ‘The Lady of Shalott’. If we can’t meet anyone in real life, who do we pretend to be and what lives do we pretend to lead?
