The Modern International Dead

by Damien Millar

They say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. Andy Warhol

From the winner of the 2007 Griffin Award and stage adaptor of Emergency Sex (and Other Desperate Measures), comes an inspiring new work for the stage.

Told with humour and courage, this enthralling kaleidoscope of personal stories features a stellar cast including Belinda McClory, Ian Meadows and Colin Moody.

Against a backdrop of miraculous visions and terrible repercussions in Rwanda, secret facilities in Iraq, landmines in Cambodia and political cleansing in East Timor comes the extraordinary stories of some very unique Australians setting out to bring relief and assistance to a troubled world. But when politics impedes progress, and reality shatters aspiration, the only consistency is compromise.

So what keeps these individuals risking their lives and going back time and time again? And when duty is done, what does it actually mean to do good in the world?

Directed by Chris Mead (Imago), this is witness theatre at its most compelling. This is The Modern International Dead.
