COLOURS a nonsense by Natasha Tsakos THE ART BOOK
Gold Winner IBPA Benjamin Franklin Digital Award
COLOURS is an absurd tragicomedy for six characters. The play engages the audience on a fool’s odyssey as he battles to make sense of a new world upon surviving an apocalyptic catastrophe, in search of a bathtub. A Peculiar Commentary on the Human Condition Facing the Perplexities of Modernity.
BOOK DESCRIPTION Each page of the play is designed as a work of art, carefully crafted through composition and typography to animate ideas on paper. "The book is entirely and intentionally composed of a mixture of real and imaginary words”, twisted, invented, pun intended. COLOURS bridges philosophy and absurdity in a judiciously dynamic way.
