Unpacking Offshore Investigation Vehicle: Profit for All

The directors of two companies meet to sign a loan agreement. One wants to secure funds for their business; the other’s aims are unclear. As they draw up the contract, a number of mistakes and omissions are made, which become apparent to the audience present, challenging the course of action on stage by revealing alternative truths.
In this live accounting-performance, the two companies behind Offshore Investigation Vehicle undertake the necessary steps to distribute profit kept offshore back to their investors onshore. This profit was realized with the sale of the Offshore Spring/Summer 2018 beachwear collection. The signed loan agreement constitutes a legal fiction: it activates the Offshore Investigation Vehicle to move the money, using its tactics of proxies and puppet directors, omissions, and corrupt or fake information.

Profit for All was coproduced with Abandon Normal Devices as part of The New Networked Normal with the support of the Creative Europe program of the European Union.
