A disruptive and queer revenge fable, decolonising and queering the narratives that have shaped Australian pop culture. Come prepared for your jaw to drop and to never watch Mad Max the same way again. Rigorously researched and masterfully remixed samples are juxtaposed and interwoven to subvert narratives about the media fictions and cultural histories taking aim at the dominant narrative of homophobia, racism and xenophobia. Lip-glossed, leather-babe Olivia Newton-John in Grease and bunny-hopping BMX Bandit Nicole Kidman reconfigure the wastelands of Mad Max as today's refugee detention sites. Flesh-eating sheep are anti-colonial anarchists and a feminist motorcycle gang is rampages righteously to un-write Australian history. It's like nothing you've seen before.
