Chaskis Theatre will take over Upstairs at The Arts Theatre for a 3 week festival to present the world premieres of: Human Emotional Process by José Rivera, Desert Rats by Nate Rufus Edelman and the European premieres of: Mothergun and Slow Falling Bird by Christine Evans.

Human Emotional Process: In an odd dystopian future, the United States government has become so powerful it has the ability to change the laws of nature. The government outlaws death. No one in America can die...

Desert Rats: Estranged brothers Frank and Jesse reunite to plan a kidnapping in a squalid motel room on a hellish day in Barstow. When day turns into night and their victim is brought out of the trunk, the siblings find their troubles have just begun.

Mothergun: A group of three war survivors with no common language struggle to survive in the mud of a refugee camp “somewhere between Europe and Hell”.

Slow Falling Bird: Set in an Immigration Detention Centre in the dead centre of the Australian desert, Slow Falling Bird moves from gritty realism to hallucinatory sequences as warping social and mental conditions on both sides of the wire lead to an explosive show-down.
