This collaboration between David Williams (Alternative Facts, Australia) and Mark Teh and June Tan (Five Arts Centre, Malaysia) explores politics, history, exhaustion, and the velocity of bullsh*t in the COVID-19 interregnum. How might we use theatre to take stock of the opportunities lost, the bargains snatched, the angers envied, and the scams inflicted? As everyone outside the arts starts to ‘snap back’ to normal life as if COVID is gone (or was never here), how might artists continue to collaborate across (closed) borders? What might this collaboration look like? This is the beginning...

Warning: Some coarse language
