Impending doom, WOW, crisis, WOW, annihilation, WOW, fear, WOW, uncertainty, WOW, rapture, WOW, terror, WOW, Little Rocket Man, WOW, cataclysmic, WOW, obliteration, WOW… wait what did Trump just Tweet… APOCALYPSE WOW!
APOCALYPSE WOW is a day long festival of performance art, activism and happenings that embraces the aesthetics of fear and dismay that we are bombarded with on a daily basis, and reclaims this space as a point of departure.
APOCALYPSE WOW takes liberal influence from its theological source material, then smashes it into more contemporary themes and aesthetics. Everything from Kanye West, Preppers, #Metoo, North Korea, to Cambridge Analytica and, The Windrush Scandal, will feed into an event that seeks to claim power and voice against the mounting existential threats we face. It’s almost impossible to look out of the window these days and not be overwhelmed at how terrifyingly dangerous and unjust everything is. One simply can’t remember the last time a newspaper was picked up and the reader thought to themselves “well things are certainly on the up aren’t they!”
For 14 hours, over 4 floors, you are invited to revel in the Apocalypse with hosts Live Art Bistro and a roster of talent from across the UK.
