Price £12

Three diverse performance pieces tackle political issues head on, interrogating identity, nationalism, xenophobia, fear and propaganda.

First, you’re forced to listen as a torrent of words are thrown at one central performer in Rivers of Blood, their body pummelled by the disembodied voices projected onto them. Then, there’s Buskin’ Boy, a piece of poetry as dance, an invitation to take a walk in the shoes of the marginalised narrator. Finally, there is Race Tracks, contemporary Britain revealed as nothing more than a brutal sport as the performers hurdle, wrestle and fight their ways through life.

With live music, spoken word, beat box, hip hop and and dance theatre, alongside short discussions around the themes raised in these pieces, this a thought-provoking showcase for performance as a form of activism.
