God Favors The Predator


About the Production

God Favors the Predator is a multidisciplinary work meditating on the issues of economic power, class and gender power, military and government power, religious power and its currency in the modern world. Quietly brutal at times, the work uses storytelling and a minimalistic physical and aural environment to examine the resulting distance between us as individuals, communities and nations. God Favors the Predator marked the second world premiere Chong and Rohd created in collaboration with Virginia Tech.
