How do you reconcile your relationship with a Tory voting, Margaret Thatcher loving, right-wing military official with your own left-wing values and politics?
Renowned theatre-maker and performer Bron Batten returns to Melbourne to present Waterloo, a new live-art performance that deconstructs the artists’ fraught relationship with a high-ranking member of the military, and in the process, questions the deep-seeded constructs of our own human morality.
Developed in residence in Maubourguet, France and at Vitalstatistix, Adelaide.
