NYID produced a 52-minute satirical docu-drama called UnMaking Of, based on the acclaimed theatrical performance The Austral/Asian Post-Cartoon: Sports Edition, devised and performed by NYID. The company aimed to promote their unique performance style in accessible media such as television. Success in this field would enable the company to move from street theatre, to in-theatre, to broadcast media depending on the subject matter of the performance.
The primary aim of NYID's docudrama lay in exploring the processes of making work. The philosophy behind NYID's work involves the presentation of the performers as the subject sites of investigation. The form of the presentations has been likened to theatrical interviews, or a kind of live docudrama. The performance in The UnMaking of provides television audiences with the experience of NYID's working process. Rather than the standard recording of performance the documentary seeks to explore theatre in a visual environment receptive to the codes of television.
