A story told through dance, poetry, and magic.
Do You Want to Live Forever?
I was just living a normal life until he came along. Now it’s been three hundred years since I abandoned my plans. It’s fun living in the company of hedonists, but…. Should I keep living forever? How long is that? Will I exist forever? I don’t know. Maybe I’ll just join some cosmic dream soup.
“It’s unusual to walk into a room and experience beauty, but Do You Want To Live Forever? is an exercise in the sublime [...] I was captivated.” - David Currie, Apt613
"Travis Martin is eccentric but friendly as the mysterious immortal, and the rhymes flow as mellifluously from his lips as the dance moves do from the other performers. Alya Graham is spellbinding..." - Ian Huffam, New Ottawa Critics
Do You Want to Love Forever? has a run time of 60 minutes.

Do You Want To Live Forever (Ottawa Fringe 2017)
"Do I want to live forever?
Hey, why not, so long as you're here with me
Do I want to breath forever?
Sure, I suppose that's part of the deal
Do I want to sleep forever?
Well, maybe not continuously
Do I want to exist forever?
Well, that seems inescapable
Do I want to love forever?
It's not something I can avoid with you in my life
Do you want to write forever?
I think I could finally outstripe Shakespeare if I did
Do you want to eat forever?
I'm not sure, how does it taste?"
