A solo work incorporating AV and call-and-response games with a riotous monologue about the culminating impact of casual racism. Blanco – a struggling Asian actor – reviews the short "life cycle" of his career with documentarian flair, unpacking the emotional labour and exhaustion of being a POC artist in Australia.
