"I remember pussy riot, and Treaty. I remember the history books I started and never finished. I remember the uniforms we wore that were simple and affordable and ethically made. I remember the definition of 'ethically made' kept shifting. I remember the beetles that wouldn't stop breeding. The knocks on the door after midnight. The loss of the arctic. The death of George Clooney..."
A show about true futures, false memory and collective action. Inspired by Donna Haraway, Timothy Morton, and the multi-million-billion-trillion other lifeforms living and dying together in this biosphere.
A team of Melbourne and Amsterdam-based artists are collaborating across 16,000km on this project.
The first public showings were held in Amsterdam on 31 August and 1 September. Book tickets here.
A series of free public events will be held in August in Amsterdam, supporting our research. More information is here.
Developed with the support of Cultureland Residency and Theatre Oostblok in the Netherlands, and Darebin Arts Centre in Australia.
