Hades Fading (Hades Memudar) is a vocal and visual performance that envisions the Ancient Greek realm of Hades fading away in post-apocalyptic times, when no humans remain to believe in it or imagine the mythical space. The work reflects on memory, media, belief and the potential catastrophe awaiting humans if we don’t care for our world.

For 22 years, the Indonesian company Mainteater has created vocal and multilingual performances with writer/ director Sandra Fiona Long and other Melbourne artists, reflecting on consumerism and its impact. Hades Fading (Hades Memudar) is the latest work in this fascinating company's ongoing history and features a sophisticated interweaving of English and Indonesian language, stunning projections, and an original score performed live. 

It is multilingual, and accessible in Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa English across a use of surtitles, visual and vocal translation.
