PINK MILK

By Ariel Zetina (fka Alex Paul Young)
Directed + Choreographed by Brandon Powers
Produced by Oracle B*Sides and Feast Productions

PINK MILK is a drama infused with dance inspired by the life of Alan Turing, the British mathematician known for creating the Turing Machine - the precursor to our modern day computers. Lonely, gay, Snow White obsessed Alan meets Christopher, a boy whose passion for piano is as deep as Alan's passion for pi.  But as soon as he appears, Christopher is gone.  As Alan grows older, he builds robots to replace his lost love, tries to find answers from a talking daisy, and gets lost in trysts with curious boys until the fateful day Alan meets the mysterious Arnold, whose poisoned apple causes Alan’s life to spiral out of control. Through movement, poetry and electronic music, PINK MILK is an experience that intersects science and art by exploring a rich fantasy world while navigating complex themes from our present society.
