Remixing Politics

CMI (A Certain Maritime Incident) / The Wages of Spin / Deeply Offensive and Utterly Untrue

Version 1.0
Remixing Politics  includes the texts of three documentary theatre productions from the acclaimed political performance group version 1.0, including  CMI (A Certain Maritime Incident)The Wages of Spin and  Deeply Offensive and Utterly Untrue. Featuring a new introduction from verbatim theatre expert Dr. Caroline Wake,  Remixing Politics is a truly unique collection, and an invaluable resource for theatre students, teachers, actors and scholars focused on contemporary documentary and verbatim theatre.

CMI (A Certain Maritime Incident)
Explores the notorious ‘children overboard’ affair of 2001, transforming a Senate Inquiry into public deception into a horribly funny tragedy.


The Wages of Spin  
Cleverly examines the issues surrounding the ‘intelligence’ reports that were used as the pretext for Australia’s involvement in the Iraq war. Subversive, witty and playful,  The Wages of Spin juxtaposes the media’s obsession with stardom with the shocking realities of war.


Deeply Offensive and Utterly Untrue  
Distils 8,800 pages of the Cole Inquiry into the ‘wheat-for-weapons’ scandal into provocative and entertaining theatre. Australian government ministers and Australian Wheat Board executives all seemed to suffer from collective amnesia about AWB paying Saddam Hussein’s regime $250 million in bribes even as Australia was preparing for war against Iraq.
