If you cannot make the new date when announced, please contact your place of purchase for a refund. If you have any other queries, contact Arts Centre Melbourne Box Office on 1300 182 183. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to welcoming you at an Asia TOPA event soon.
Alex Wang and Chill Chill present their cyberoptic visions of modern China.
Loosely based on the dystopian illusions of Orwell’s 1984, the duo has created an apocalyptic landscape with game engine environments and avatars to guide the audience through this unreal nightmare.
Their performance includes contemporary critiques and historical warnings for future civilisations: from autocratic surveillance to artificial agency, the pair presents an alarming forecast for the digital age.
Alex Wang is part of the Sinofuturists program curated for Asia TOPA by Mat Spisbah.
