Homage to Bricolage
BY Mark J Wilson | 18-Apr-2017
Projection, performance, Shakespeare, KFC, identity and politics in the digital age.
From a reflection about not wanting to think about the politician George Christensen’s penis; to a guy in his underwear playing the videogame World of Warcraft who’s reached the limit of Facebook friends; to an insatiable hunger for ‘The Colonel’s’ original chicken combo.
The controversial Safe School’s program is sharply bought into the spotlight. Wilson then turns to the lived experience of online/offline identity, sexuality, gender, marriage, media and Shakespeare.
Did you just say KFC and Shakespeare? Yes.
Performed against a dynamic and immersive backdrop, the stage becomes a canvas as image, text, music and media create a surreal rainbow world.
Homage to Bricolage will surprise and provoke at every turn: Audacious, brave and beautiful, Mark J Wilson’s artful creativity and voice will command.
