Some say he was dealt an unfair hand. They called him Mr. Gold. But after he rose to small town fame something strange happened. He blames five-card stud. One trick led to another. Suddenly, he was hunting down the Queen of Hearts. He must’ve lost his mind. No one chases the Queen.

Brilliant Mind is a live digital interactive experiment exploring the immigrant psyche. Choose a portal and chase the narrative. Lure him into submission. Deviate from the norm. You control his destiny. Inspired by Townes Van Zandt’s iconic tune “Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold,” discover the secrets of an outsider fighting all odds. Provocative, intimate, and wholly unique, no two performances will be the same. Explore the dark, poetic corners of one man’s mind as he struggles to find his way back to himself.
