About the show
On a misty morning in 1996 a boy travels to school on a double-decker bus. In 1936 a journeyman-boxer prepares for the fight of his life. In a submerged city in the distant future, an archaeological excavation is underway. A relic from the past holds the key to the future. Is Day Zero the beginning of the end?
Cyberpunk meets microhistory, in this dazzling exploration of water, the city and memory. The play interweaves water sustainability challenges with entertaining Bangalore cantonment stories. It combines climate-change dystopia and retro-futurism to challenge our perceptions of past and future.
