The perfect work/life balance exists. 8 hours rest, 8 hours play, 8 hours of absurd corporate hell.
8/8/8 : Work

At close of play and the end of days, optimisation never ends.

The world of Comic Sans reply-alls is taken offline in this experimental marathon performance by artists Harriet Gillies and Marcus McKenzie.

Clock-in with an expert team of life coach gurus, microdosing tech-bros, multi-level marketing scammers, and an intern paid entirely in exposure for this ridiculous capitalist phantasm. As the performance spills from a CAPTCHA-esque maze of queues and QR codes and into an absurd corporate seminar, bodies will rise en masse to break free from cubicles and bring to life the Casual Friday horrors of human production lines and relentless consumption.

8/8/8: WORK is the first in a series of three performance works examining the industrialised split of our lives into neat, equal slivers of work, rest and play.
