Artists hold a privileged position in society - as participant, interpretor, critic, commentator, translator. An artist may respond to abstract ideas or harsh realities. However free an artist may try to be, one can never truly break away from the realities and conventions of the society at large - that is, the capitalist model. This project allows artists to explore the nature of capitalism, look for alternatives, and experiment with the alternatives within a creative context.
Large-scale, cross-genre collaborative artwork in 3 parts. Artists from diverse disciplines form a Collective, responding to "capitalism". Meetings are structured to foster interdisciplinary sharing, collaboration, cross-pollination, and break down the notion of authorship/ownership. A body of material is produced which is synthesised into an epic spectacle. P.2 is a state-of-the-nation play. P.3 takes the Collective on to a "site" where they can live and work outside of capitalist structures
