WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Inspired by going "all in" at poker where the player risks everything, ALL IN takes a wild ride through vastly different, seemingly unconnected worlds. Everyday situations take unexpected turns into the absurd and poignant, boundaries are tested, meals ruined, a dead guest goes to a nightclub and a bearded lady bares her soul. Behind the humour and swirling imagery lies a deeper exploration of how the tyranny of the crowd annihilates the individual. From dictatorship to national anthems, education to self-help manuals, we consider ourselves free from indoctrination, but at the same time choose to participate in other systems of apparently harmless social control.
ALL IN is performed mainly in English with surtitles for a short section in Japanese. Contains some strong language.
