THE AGONY, THE ECSTASY AND i

Writer/Performer

The Blue Room Theatre 2013

Two women interrogate the global supply chain of the little bits of metal and plastic that sit in our back pockets. Based on Mike Daisy's monologue 'The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs", Toyi-Toyi Theatre use dance, projection and text to confront the ethics behind our electronics.

Devised in response to monologue The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs by self-professed gonzo-journalist Mike Daisy, we created a dance-theatre work where everyone is complicit.

"Powerfully thought-provoking, and rejoices in an original, intriguing and skilled delivery...The strength and skill of both performers was impressive." - ArtsHub

"This is a novel and powerful way of getting across an important message, and it has been carried out with a great deal of skill." - Theatre Australia
