Directed by Feras Shaheen.

The performative video installation draws from the postmodern concept of hyperreality, exploring shifting states of personal perception. Using semiotics, street dance and digital media, the performers in Plastic Bag navigate the boundaries of their highly mediated worlds; pushing against their own desires, warped realities and their hyperreal existence.

PLEASE NOTE: It is a condition of entry that patrons are double vaccinated. Face-masks are mandatory in all indoor venues across Sydney. Free disposable masks will be available at box office, but to lessen our impact on the environment, please bring one with you.
