The line up:

Silence is Gold by Anthi Psachou
A performance-protest challenging  the notion of accents and the stereotypes they imply, in the post-Brexit vote UK, through the eyes of a foreigner trying to fit in.  

Swarm by Liv Ello
We over-populate. We spread disease. We eat a load of shit. We are flies.
Swarm explores the connections between toxic expressions of white privilege and the behaviour of flies.

BOXTICKERS by Korupt Kabuki 
Becky and Lucy are individuals. Becky likes cake and parks. Lucy likes cheese and canals. Lucy is non-binary. Becky is BAME. Becky and Lucy are BOXTICKERS. Together they explore marketing identity in a world were identity exists between the boxes.
