Return to Escape from Woomera
About Return to Escape from Woomera
Sixteen years ago Australia's political landscape was rocked by a video game putting players in the shoes of a refugee escaping detention. Now the sprawling creative collective Applespiel invite you to make your own bid for freedom as part of a turbo-charged and retro-fitted evening of live gaming, performance, discussion and debate. Each night the artists develop a live commentary to accompany the gameplay alongside human rights advocates, refugees and the game's original makers, exploring the ongoing significance of this singular cultural intervention.
