LUDIC PROXY is a multi-lingual, multi-media play exploring the tenuous line between memory, reality and fantasy through three apocalyptic narratives that unfold within an immersive theatrical landscape:

Act One: The Past / Pripyat A woman becomes obsessed with a video game when she recognizes its setting as her hometown Pripyat, abandoned after the Chernobyl crisis.

Act Two: The Present / Fukushima A pregnant woman living in the outskirts of the Fukushima nuclear evacuation zone is torn between abandoning her hometown and saving herself and her child.

Act Three: The Future / New York A woman contemplates her own mortality and possible progeny, unable to imagine a hopeful tomorrow within a technology-saturated underground future world.
