Using the computer construction game Minecraft as a kind of theatre, a group of gamer / performers between the ages of 10 to 45 enact different narratives, live, in front of an audience of roughly the same age. In a rocky and mountainous landscape, they tell the story of Grendel's mother's brutal act of revenge from the Beowulf saga. In a clearing in the woods they reveal the brief but powerful lessons that Bambi's mother taught him, before that horrible day in the meadow. Somewhere in a nearby city, a cyborg assassin called The Terminator travels back from the year 2029 to the year 1984 to destroy a woman named Sarah Connor. Other stories emerge: stories of hyper-strength and fatal forgetfulness; galactic love and worry. Of regret and shame. Of a most powerful bond. These stories become the myths within a performance that unpacks one of the world's most essential relationships - that of mother and son. Including found material from news stories and our own personal relationships, MINE opens up expansive and strange new territories in a multi-generational live performance. MINE is built Theatre Replacement with Conor Wylie and Remy Siu of Hong Kong Exile, and a group of 5 young gamer / performers from artsdepot's community.
