It is a dance-topian future.

“Sound Syndrome: SoHo Heartbreaker,” a new dance and music-infused play from Big Man on Campus Entertainment, explores the strange and hallucinatory side effects a woman experiences after severe emotional trauma. The performance will happen six times between Sept. 12 and Sept. 27 at Brooklyn Arts Exchange in Park Slope.

“It shows what happens when you are an emotional wreck,” said director Walter Tucker. “Her boyfriend spends the whole show trying to pull her out.”

The play is set in SoHo in the year 2032, when a disorder known as Sound Syndrome is causing victims to fall into comas after traumatic events. The victims then hallucinate various sounds, songs, and dances. The tale of the government and political intrigue is the backdrop for the story of one victim.

Tucker is a hip-hop producer who has worked with the likes of Rasheeda Wallace and Berry Boo. He not only directed the play, but he also wrote and produced it, and he wrote and recorded all of the music for the production.
