About the Play
The world premier of “multinational gRape corporations” written by Ozgur Cinar was staged in the 2010 Ottawa Fringe Festival. “multinational gRape corporations” is an innovative and critical play nourished by negative dialectics. The play is about a couple whose lives have been taken over by the ongoing advertisements and fragments in particular, institutions and bigger authorities in general. It reflects an imminent critique of the effects of culture industry which we are heavily experiencing in our every day lives. By the same token, the play is also a critique of US war in Iraq, Fascist regimes in the world, Immigration policy of Canada, current economic crises, ongoing attempts of the governments to promote precarious work and ecological crisis. Through unfolding the contradictions inherit in these realities the show tries to get the audiences think critically about these issues.
