Directed by Sun Xiaoxing

China
Australian Premiere 

Enter a dream-like bedroom saturated with subculture in this hyper-real production by Sun Xiaoxing, Beijing’s leading figure in the fringe theatre scene. A group of millennial girls sit in a fishbowl dormitory, using their phones and doing whatever takes their fancy. Surreal and self-obsessed, the girls simultaneously exist in the real world and a virtual fantasy: a hypnotic mix of screens, junk food, cosplay, live streaming, stuffed cartoon characters and live post-rock music. The audience is both voyeur and participant, encouraged to download a social app to exchange texts with the girls during the performance. Here is the Message You Asked For... is a raw portrait of digital disconnection and the increasing cyber reality encroaching on our lives today. 

The cast occasionally speak in Mandarin but the words are intentionally unintelligible and therefore no surtitles are used. To interact with the performers during the show, audience will need to download and use WeChat.
