27-28 March | EAST SYDNEY COMMUNITY AND ARTS CENTRE
The performative video installation ‘Plastic Bag’ 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.
