nil by mouth
by duncan graham
What holds us hostage to fear? Performance as politics or politics as performance?
Part scripted, part improvisation, part rehearsal and re-enactment, Nil by Mouth places its audience inside the crucible of forces that shaped the Lindt cafe siege – the political ideas, forms of terror, its reportage, racial tensions, security measures, religious conflicts and personal tragedies and anxieties.
Under the watchful eye of the camera, Nil by Mouth runs a fine line between some of the great tensions of our current political landscape – the real and fake, spectator and participant; terror and order, tolerance and violence.
Thrilling, daring, hilarious. A theatre event for our times.
Featuring: Matt Crook, Eugenia Fragos and Rory Walker | Director by Corey McMahon | Producer: Manda Webber | AV Designer: Chris Petridis
