The state of the world is burning and the line between news and entertainment has blurred.
Faceless elite hide behind gruesome, voyeuristic game shows as they manipulate all media, societies and politics.
This game show is the Battle Royale, a reality T.V show where regular people destroy each other on international television.
The fate of the contestants-turned-gladiators lies with the live audience, who’s votes can influence the outcome of the game and whether a contestant lives or dies.
Peep Show, Battle Royale is a darkly comedic, theatrical experience, all seen from behind the window of a grungy cubical reminiscent of a voyeuristic peep show.
