The World is Flooding is a performance based on Mystery Bouffe, a Mayakovsky play written in 1921 for the anniversary of the 1917 Russian revolution. Over several months artist Oreet Ashery worked with a group of participants to write, produce, and direct a performance. The elements of the performance are influence by Russian futurism, including Malevich’s set designs for Victory Over the Sun and Zaum poetry.

The absurd emerges as a continuous theme throughout the performance, where we are confronted with the absurdity of politics, of the language of administration and power, and of class and socially based biases.

The performance includes specially made costumes, banners and a zine produced over the course of the workshops. It takes place at Turbine Hall, Tate Modern, in July of 2014.

In collaboration with Freedom From Torture (Write to Life group), UKLGIG (UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group) and Portugal Prints.
