Performed by the Wyndham Edge ensemble, ‘Tig will be the highlight performance at Night Waves at Wyndham Cultural Centre.
The play takes the Greek tragedy Antigone and reinvents it in a world where people of colour have power and privilege and white people are the victims of racism. The play draws inspiration from political satire TV series, ‘Veep’, to show the way politicians and the media use racism to maintain popularity.
Featuring film, hip hop and live theatre, the play is a searing satirical comedic adaptation that directly addresses the current world of ‘fake news’ and culture wars.
Night Waves will kick off with atmospheric sounds from Josh Ephraum’s work Avalanche, followed by the performance of ‘Tig at 7pm. After the show discover local dancers, and hip-hop artists from Benchmark who will invite you to explore Wyndham Art Gallery and, the current exhibition – LOCAL by photographer, Robert Young, and sculptor, Jonathan Mendez Baute.
