David Woods

Devolving, shaming and space invading. Fear, conspiracy, collapse, terror, frustration, solidarity and hope. Mud wrestling. THIS is a brutally funny, raw and unflinching response to the theme of infuriation.

Internationally acclaimed theatre-maker David Woods (Ridiculusmus, Back to Back Theatre, Sydney Dance Company, Malthouse) brought together an alliance of Naarm, Victorian, Cantonese, Syrian, Bundjalung, American, Yemeni, Greek, Gamilaraay, British, Chinese, Italian, Indian, Korean, Ethiopian, Somalian, Congolese and Aotearoa—Pākehā (settler) and Māori—collaborators to debunk pomp and power in a site responsive work for RISING. Shut down by the pandemic in 2021, the work has been reconceived to squelch within the confines of an abandoned power station and former corporate headquarters: The Former Richmond Power Station.
