Brisbane Festival and QUT present


06 - 10 Sep
Theatre Republic - The Loft
Rachel Perks and Bridget Balodis (AUS)

Part science experiment, part love story, and a lot of queer feminist Sci-Fi, GROUND CONTROL fast forwards our world 100 years into the future and spits it back with a grimace.

Meet Chris, a tireless young astronaut departing a world where women are killed so frequently it barely rates as news, millions of people are displaced by climate change, and cyborgs are evolving exponentially. She’s on an interstellar mission to find Earth 2.0 and save all of humanity. No biggie.

A furious, experimental comedy about violence, technological singularity and long-distance relationships, this is a confronting and passionate new performance created by the award-winning team behind ANGRY SEXX.

Have we already reached the point of no return?

This production contains adult themes, coarse language, sexual references, sound pressure effects (loud noises) and violence.
GROUND CONTROL is presented with the support of the New Working Group. It was originally developed for 2016 Next Wave Festival in association with Darebin Arts’ Speakeasy Program. It has been made possible through assistance from the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the personal contributions of many individual donors.
