FANTASY ISLAND is an experience that -through satire- explores how tourism and consumer culture sell a “fantastical” luxury lifestyle, a tropical paradise twisting crisis into “opportunity”. What is the cost of this amidst a debt crisis with profound implications on an island of 3.5 million U.S. citizens? Who’s future are we serving?
