Easter Week 1
My eyes are vague blue, like the sky, and change all the time.
– Frank O'Hara, Meditations in an Emergency
A precocious young man on the cusp of adulthood, Artem grapples for a sense of purpose. Estranged from his father, dismissed by his lover and disillusioned by the world around him, he exists in a limbo that is hard to escape. But as a political campaign threatens to turn things sour, Artem must confront his priorities and carve out a path of his own.
However Belligerent the Cactus is an original drama that deals with ambition, idealism, and the search for identity. In a time where life itself can become a performance, learning to be authentic is no simple task.
