Kairos Dirt & the Errant Vacuum follows a middle school lunch lady and her multiple lovers, her religious co-worker, a gender-queer student, and a phone sex operator/psychic medium. Through collective dreams, a trans-worldly ghost invades the characters’ sleep to reveal an alternate realm of wanton, subconscious desire. Amid the post-industrial decay of the American South, television monitors, radio frequencies, orifices and dreams all become portals to access this mysterious carnal dimension.
