        Powerful Event, The

Powerful Event, The

Dreaming a people's tomorrow, with tomorrow's people's dreams It is 2028. Nouveau Monde Global is taking over the world. Their next step is Christchurch. The empty lot on the corner of Cashel and Manchester has been set up as a press conference with a backdrop of shipping containers and a labyrinth of construction fencing. This is where the flagship 'Inspirational Development Hub' will be erected. Nouveau Monde Global has called the public here to give an insight into their values and ambitions. It quickly escalates as the unsuspecting public are enlisted into the company as a slave labour force under the direction of the intimidatingly friendly management staff. Who will be chosen as the 'representatives' and have the honor of sacrificing family and fortune for the good of NMG? Who will be labelled 'defective' and be sent deeper into the maze for an uncertain fate? The Powerful event is based on dystopian-future, science fiction films and the theatre works of Gob Squad (Berlin/UK), Barbarian Productions (NZ) and Future Hotel (NZ). -
