Presented by Unshaded Arts
Once a statement is made online, it can seldom be taken back. What happens when people don’t like what you have to say? What if you had the opportunity to confront your trolls in the flesh? And who’s to say you’re not the troll?
Bigot sees two disagreers under fire after expressing their conflicting viewpoints online. A physical, timely and explosive exploration of the negative repercussions of freedom of speech, using absurdism to take aim at the nature of disagreements, the reactivity of social media, and the horrors of internet trolling and cancel culture.
Bigot was first previewed as part of CPT’s ‘Handle with Care’ festival in 2019.
