Underground Absolute Fiction is an immersive play-meets-punk-concert, inspired by the apartment theatre of 1980s Poland. It invites audiences into a secret meeting with a queer punk band and Lena, a Polish-Canadian settler. Together, those who are gathered must grapple with the complex legacies of diaspora, queer rights movements, and white supremacy -- in both Europe and Turtle Island (Canada).
