Karl Nimeni is Not Dead – I Killed Karl Nimeni by Dancing Monkey Laboratories presented by Theatre Junction

May 3, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - May 6, 2018 @ 11:00 pm MDT

KARL NIMENI IS NOT DEAD – I KILLED KARL NIMENI is part Dada, part surrealist, part existentialist but mostly this play is influenced by, and structured on, the teachings and research of Karl Nimeni.

Charles Fleming is in crisis; nothing makes sense or allows him to follow the flow of existence. Being is becoming difficult. We meet him in a jail cell, charged with the murder of Karl Nimeni. The only evidence against him is a dream. He speaks to the audience or the jury or his god or himself. His reality has been compromised by his own dreams. We learn that he believes he is innocent because Karl Nimeni murdered him.

On this narrative journey we meet different versions of Karl Nimeni as understood by Charles, a man he might have never met, and a dancer who represents a primitive longing in Charles, beyond rationality and logic.

Through dialogue, movement, sound and projection, we learn who Charles Fleming truly is, we discover the teachings of Karl Nimeni and we (whoever we are) leave the theatre with more questions then when we arrived. If you ask if Karl Nimeni really exists, you have to ask if you exist first.

 KARL NIMENI IS NOT DEAD – I KILLED KARL NIMENI is a night play, a theatrical poem, a moment in time and a narrative dream. It is a play that is more than it seems and less than is known.
