CARGO CLUB Transcultural Underground for Thoroughly Good Social Intercourse /
Teater Transkultural untuk Hubungan Sosial yang Menyenangkan
Past, present and future align in a relaxed club-style performance embracing global themes and global citizens. Immersive and unpredictable, CARGO CLUB is spontaneously co-created by culturally and artistically diverse artists from the Centre for Australasian Theatre CfAT (Far North Queensland) and DarahRouge (West Java). Intimately personal and cultural stories of colonization, migration and transformation are unpacked from suitcases, boxes and crates as the ‘cargo’ we all carry and trade. Fleeting moments of beauty and passion, great world sadness, multi-lingual expressions of human happiness, frightening and comforting confrontations with the ‘other’. . . appear and fragment. Combining retro- and futurist technologies, spoken words, ancient rituals, live art, cool tunes and fluid improvisation, CARGO CLUB is a rich and provocative theatre experience that breaks all the rules. Japanese, Indonesian, Dutch, English, Spanish, Italian, Tetun, Papua New Guinean or Google translate available, BYO dictionary and selfie-stick. Please feel free to join in with the CARGO CLUB Dress Code: Mystery Guest, Evening Dress/Black Tie or Tropical Beach Wear.
