The future is cancelled. We are stuck with reality. The UK is leaving the EU. Donald Trump is leader of the free world. Facebook is telling us which way to vote. The 8 richest people in the world own as much as 3.5 billion others. We need to move forward.
Commonism is a meeting of two people from different countries in search of some common ground. It’s a performed conversation – a dialogue that asks questions about nationality, internationality, theatre and politics. Join two award-winning theatre makers – the UK’s Andy Smith and Norway’s Amund Sjølie Sveen, as they discuss who they are, who we are and where we are going.
Supported by Norsk Kulturråd, BIT Teatergarasjen, Bergen and Lancaster Arts. Produced by Louise Blackwell
“What I am sure about is that it is the most directly political and active piece of theatre I have ever engaged with and there is something quite radical about that.’ – Eve Allin, Exeunt
“… in the interplay between its minimal theatricality and a sincere commitment to actual shared presence and collective potential, it guilefully interrogates its limitations, politically and performatively.’ – Gareth Llyr Evans, The Guardian
