Fifteen years ago, a group of Australians made  Escape From Woomera : a politically explosive video game that put players in the shoes of a refugee held in immigration detention. Applespiel invite you to play  Escape from Woomera  in this specially-commissioned live gaming and performance experience. Each night, the artists create a live commentary to accompany the gameplay alongside human rights advocates, refugees and the creators of the original game, exploring the contemporary significance of this cultural intervention.   This project was commissioned for Performance Space, Sydney for Liveworks 2018
