The one question Jaz Mattu, a professional software engineer, ( who looks much more serious than he actually is), constantly gets asked when he explains he wants to change careers to be an artist is “Why are you doing this?”. Jaz wants to answer this question.
Join Jaz, software engineer by day and emerging artist by night – as he explores ‘What is success’ and debuts his first interactive storytelling extravaganza, deconstructing the economics of being creative and the impact of the cost of living on how we live our lives in 2023.
Through live-art, stand-up and the creative use of a leaf blower, find out how he escaped conservative suburbia to chase financially ruinous dreams in the big city.
Expect multi-media, organised chaos and joyful absurdity.
