After the Apocalypse
Presented with Theatre Passe Muraille
with Centre Court
“After The Apocalypse” is a short digital theatre scroll-through experience meant to flip theatre tradition on its head. Through its uniquely intimate experience of you and your device, "After the Apocalypse" gives its audience a glimpse into the theatre of a different hue and examines the many ways in which a question may be answered.
Inspired by many personal epiphanies had during the pandemic; a journey filled with change, new perspective, growth, and rebirth mirrored through the reimagining of our Earth’s functioning, "After the Apocalypse" exemplifies a particularly newfangled Queer Futurism. Through transition of theme, transition of form, transition of personhood, and transition of perspective I hope to make space for new ideas, for Queer liberation, and encourage audiences to consider the multiplicity of a conundrum and the rabbit hole it will lead you down.
