Slack Mirror — Nice Loud Voices
Sketch comedy, dystopian-style.
November 20, 2019
From the screen to the page, tales of the future have promised us many, many things over the years. Some of them were good, like Back to the Future: Part II's hoverboards. Some of them weren't, such as 1984's vision of governmental control. Some of them just keep finding new ways to turn technological advances into a horror story, which is why Black Mirror keeps us all hooked.
Now, imagine this kind of thinking, but in a sketch comedy show. The end result: Slack Mirror. Hitting Brisbane Powerhouse from Thursday, November 28–Sunday, December 1 as part of this year's Wonderland festival, it packages bleak dystopian visions with a sense of humour.
Amy Currie (Love/Hate Actually) and Drew Lochrie (Titanic: the Movie, the Play) will be your guides into the future — and expect their take on things to come to take a "well we may as well laugh about it" approach.
