ALL YOU NEED
Inspired by the true story of a German cannibal, "M," who advertised on the Internet for a "well- built man for slaughter." Reportedly more than 400 people volunteered, with the leading candidate ended up in M's refrigerator—and stomach.
Like a crazed lover, All You Need begs you to feel until you’re spent. Weaving together spoken word, floating props, video, live music, and haunting vocals, the multi-media production releases an emotional vortex, where loneliness, love, lust, and longing twist and intermingle.
