Hacked: The Treasure of the Empire
Jun 10, 2015 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
HACKED…THE TREASURE OF THE EMPIRE! is a contemporary tale set in a futuristic and dystopic world of pirate hacker activists taking on the largest global bank on the planet – the Mammon Corporation, residing in a “house-of-horrors”-esque superstructure. It is a metaphoric extravaganza of a daring, undercover heist to infiltrate the coffers of the corporate and corrupted global bank controlling the destiny of every man and woman. Through virtual manipulation, the hackers liberate the bank’s vault of all their gold with unexpected and terrifying consequences. Political and biblical references underline this experimental opera told through song, aerial acrobatics, video & huge puppet heads perched high in the riggings of the ship. It features poetic lyrics, an exotic musical score, multiple video screens with an array of visual trickery, surreal lighting and sound with passionate characters that strut, swagger, swoon and swing high above the ship’s deck.
