OzAsia and Nexus Arts Present: DRAPETOMANIA

Filastine + Nova

Australian Premiere

Spain & Indonesia

An audiovisual strike against xenophobia and for a borderless polyphonic world.

Drapetomania borrows its name from a 19th-century term diagnosing the urge to escape from slavery. Board this flight and journey through megacities, compromised oceans and expanding deserts, searching for an escape hatch from the anthropocene.

Music, live cinema, and dance combine in this electrifying collaboration between Barcelona-based composer Grey Filastine and Indonesian neo-soul vocalist Nova Ruth.

Saturday 8 Oct Doors @ 8PM
Support at 8.30PM
