Epic Poetry of Our Time –
Award-winning migrant storyteller Hideto Ambiguous reenacts a mass immigrant rights protest from its birth to death and afterlife through an hour of continuous metamorphosis from a character to another. Bring your own frame of this chaotic world. Mind-boggling, nicely-choreographed, wittily-worded fusion political theatre shall be served.
You are at a conference alongside fellow strategists watching a documentary tracing an entrepreneurial, fourth-generation immigrant Shinzo. He has video footage that implicates a secret alliance between the police and Omnidirection Tech Company together provoking violence at a peaceful immigrant rights protest to justify cracking down the undocumented. However, Omnidirection is a client at a consultant firm he works for. He knows he can either leak it or delete it, but he doesn’t know his decision-making is monitored closely…
*This event is the screening of pre-recorded performance.
**Frames of the Chaos is supported by the City of Melbourne COVID-19 Arts Grants.
