Degeneration X is an original multimedia theatrical experience that follows a young man on his journey with a rare and visually stimulating syndrome, Charles Bonnet Syndrome. Xavier is a struggling artist living in Brooklyn, but lately his struggles have reached far beyond his normal routine. The life he lives is slowly becoming a life he doesn't recognize. With the arrival of his sister, an abrasive roommate, his intellectual equal, and an unconventional relationship, Xavier encounters a cast of characters who allow him a new way of perceiving the world around him; questioning his own reality. Degeneration X uses live performance, film, motion graphics, illustration, and music to chronicle the different pockets of one man's neurosystem. As Xavier drives through his condition, the audience takes front seat on a surreal and rousing ride through the human mind. Degeneration X experiences with the light, the dark, the absurd, and the unexplainable aspects of the human condition.
