Truth is not subjective.
POINT8SIX* is an urgent, humanist comedy epic about life, the universe, philosophy, the Cold War, Berlin, espionage, the future, the past, revisionism, radio, consolidated power, ruthlessness, appropriation, limitless rage, the infinite quantum sheet and the eternal murder of the moment.
Unabashed and completely mad, a formidable romp in Absurdia.
*.86 seconds – the average time it takes a heart to beat.
‘mind-twisting, hilarious sci-fi’ – Anne-Marie Peard, Sometimes Melbourne
‘POINT8SIX is a rare bit of bizarro brilliance’– Raphael Solarsh, Artshub
‘It’s rare to find a theatremaker who trusts the crowd enough to throw them so far from the shore of sense…’
– John Bailey, Realtime
