Background


The New American Work Programme is supported by The Harold & Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, Lawton W Fitt & James I McLaren Foundation and Kathleen J Yoh.

Synopsis


Their phones switched off, a group of peope sit around a table telling, categorising and theorising stories.


This is a world that is both familiar and fantastical.


Their real purpose is never quite clear, but they continue on, searching for the monstrous.


Part satire, part sacred rite, The Antipodes asks what value stories have for a world in crisis.
