Presented by Jamal Gerald
Jamal used to be dogmatic. Well, he still slightly is. But now he is more open to hearing different opinions. Exploring free speech, Facebook debates, police brutality, privilege and self reflection… DOGMATIC focuses on what happened when Jamal became more aware of racial inequality and how he allowed this to consume him.
With found text, you will get to share your views and discuss ideas that you may agree or disagree with.
This work examines the concept that all views should be expressed and challenged and asks: is no idea above scrutiny?
Please note this DOGMATIC includes strong language and content that some people may find offensive or disturbing. You are free to leave at any point.
A Theatre in the Mill commission DOGMATIC is supported using public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England with further support from Theatre Delicatessen Sheffield, Cast, Live Art Bistro, Home Live Art and Live Art UK through Diverse Actions.
