If the Light Flickers... by Leo Tsao. On tunnel vision, unrelenting cruelty, perseverance through diminishing hope, playing in the mud, and creating magic in the darkness.

An experimentation of shadow puppetry, expanded cinema, and analog animation.

This new work has been commissioned by Brand X and assisted by the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its arts funding and advisory body; and is supported by the City of Sydney. 

About the artist:

Leo Tsao (he/him) is a Taiwanese-Australian experimental artist working predominantly with film and movement. 

He often brings together disparate and unlikely disciplines and collaborators through formal explorations to rupture expectations, heteronormativity and whiteness to create new modes of perception and possibilities.
