A glimpse of a future world, distilled down to the skyscraper headquarters of Globe, Inc., located on a man-made island off the coast of Singapore, where American workers plan a rebellion.

Based on the short story 1776 by Leland Cheuk, 1776: A Fresh Start is a multidisciplinary theatrical performance with sounds, sights, movements, and rhythms, clamoring in a dystopian future where America has lost its ascendance to Russia, India, and China. When depersonalized American workers plan a rebellion, a memory-erased janitor must make a fateful decision amidst global capitalism gone feral.
