K refracts the events of 9/11 through the multi-faceted prism of Franz Kafka’s The Trial, George Orwell’s 1984 and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
By fusing hard-core physical action, digital technology, sonic architectures and new texts, a dark, humorous and violent landscape called ‘democracy’ is mapped out in the new Information Age.
Originally produced for Melbourne International Festival of the Arts 2002, K was invited to open the Vienna Festwochen 2003 and was re-commissioned by Seoul Performing Arts Festival 2005 as a bi-lingual production.
