More about ‘Empyre’
Once upon a time an emperor rules the land. The Emperor had an elaborate wardrobe and luxurious lifestyle meanwhile his people suffered.
Sensing change on the horizon he manufactures a crisis. At all costs he must keep his crown. When the ‘crisis’ goes viral, millions descend upon the land to help.
When ‘reality’ descends into nightmare – The Emperor tries to overcome what was, in reality, as illusion.
Confused? What is real? What is manufactured? Who remembers? Does it matter?
When an army of revolting subjects are uncovered who will wear the crown and who will be ‘exposed’? You are officially invited to attend court where Wake The Beast with Circus Zambia and Barefeet Theatre combine forces for an empirical evening, which needs to be seen with your own eyes.
