Description:ZERO is about how human identity has been reduced to numbers. We are valued by the number of followers or the number of retweets we get. What happens if these numbers no longer count? What if we find ourselves without a number?
The performance aims to highlight how boxed in we have all become by numbers, rules and regulations we have ourselves created. Who dares to question the validity of these? Who dares to defy their inner police voice and self-censorship? Who dares to find their inner Antigone and dives in to rewrite the game?
