It's seven decades since the white-collars and black magic first combined, and across from the Coke Sign in Kings Cross the alchemy is as powerful as ever.
This electrifying, breakneck odyssey of hate from Doppelgangster (UK/AUS) - world leaders in iconoclastic, political performance - drag Brecht's Epic of corporate greed into the 21st Century.
Sacrificing their own humanity at the stage's edge Welsh Academic Dr Tom Payne's and Tobias Manderson-Galvin's hypnotic and darkly-comic performance work makes Brian de Palma seem banal, Die Antwoord restrained, and Zizek a philistine.
Take a class-war battlefield flashback in this brutalist, sadistic, and prophetic spectacle. Feel a cool trail of sweat down your cheek from a vicious score by (we will announce shortly shhh), and get shockingly intimate with one of the most phenomenal live performance companies in action.
