Hacked…Treasure of the Empire
The Caravan’s 43rd season in 2014/15, was an experimental musical created right off the headlines and news of the international media conglomerates.. an operatic theatre fantasy featuring a Band of Virtual Pirate Hackers who have “revoked” the “Treasure of the Empire”.
The HACKED plot revolved around the machinations of the Mammon trying to find the “Treasure of the Empire”…the whereabouts known only to the Hackers. The Mammon must find the Treasure of the Empire or else the Mammon Corp Regime will collapse. This Caravan show explored the quest for freedom of expression, in political & social discourse, within the multiverse world of the internet & virtual media; examines the ubiquitous presence of the machinations of surveillance; and probes the ethics of the dissolution of the public, democratic control over the justice and penal systems.
