Ninety-nine percent of the world’s population has vanished, leaving only piles of clothes on the floor where they were standing. Five survivors must decide what happens next.

The Sydney performance house The Violent Romantics are everything that their parents hate: young, loud and opinionated. “The kids are not alright, but that is most definitely a part of their charm” - REALTIME MAGAZINE.

The History of the World from Now is a speculative fiction born from conversations with futurologists, neurologists, vegans and vets. As humans build more and more of themselves into external tools - creating hammers for fists, knives for teeth, stoves for stomachs and books for memory - we start to question how much of us is left when they're taken away. This play looks at humanity’s rapidly developing relationship with technology and asks how we would cope if all our accessories were suddenly lost.
