And did we mention that hes also pretty fine? In his triple-act multimedia solo performance, which explores the dangers of living with too much technology, McQuilkens character Rex resides in a post-apocalyptic bunker in whichthrough prerecorded video images and soundtrackshis computer guides him as though he were the machine. Country music, hip-hop, dance, acrobatics, and capoeira also feature in this Flying Carpet Theatre production.
