Miller Performing Arts: Big Brother is Watching You
“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” George Orwell
“The future is there... looking back at us. Trying to make sense of the fiction we will have become.” William Gibson
Since the beginning of time, writers and storytellers have imagined what our future holds, inviting us to travel through time to explore new worlds through their work. At times we celebrate creative triumphs, at times we are alarmed by how fine the line is between fact and fiction.
Big Brother is Watching You is an original dance and physical theatre work that explores some of literature’s richest, most daring and at times dark imaginings of our future, including George Orwell’s 1984, Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, Mark Ravenhill’s The Cut, and Dennis Kelly’s After the End.
The production brings together youth and professional performers and is created by Mimi Burns, Anca Chung, Lai Tak-wai and King Wong, as well as YAF Youth Assistant Choreographers Tess Chau, Vivian Ho, Rae Lee, Billy Lo, Dominique Tse and Heiyin Wong.
