Foreign Radical [2015]

Foreign Radical draws participants into an intriguing theatrical game world exploring security, profiling, terrorism, freedom of expression and privacy in the age of cyber surveillance. 

Mobile throughout the performance, they collaborate and compete, investigate and debate, gather evidence, are interrogated, and spy on each other. Depending on personal and group decisions, they are at times in divided in groups to witness different perspectives on dramatic scenes and documentary media that colour their views and ability to win the game.

With multilingual elements in Farsi and Arabic.
