Presented by Jamal Harewood
“An extraordinary charged and disturbing meditation on cultural stereotypes and perceptions and fears” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
Jamal Harewood’s much-discussed The Privileged is a solo participatory performance event that explores race, community and the identity of the working-class citizen within today’s society.
The audience are encouraged, through written instruction, to work together whilst tending to a polar bear’s daily needs, in an unnatural representation of this magnificent creature’s Arctic habitat.
Contains nudity and the consumption of food.
There will be a post-show discussion after every performance. Free for ticket holders.
“Fascinating [and] chilling… A brilliant exploration of privilege, or, perhaps more accurately, of entitlement” – Andrew Haydon, Postcards from the Gods
“A terrifyingly good show” – Synonyms of Churlish, Megan Vaughan
Catch The Privileged in a double bill with Calculating Kindness (7.30pm). Two shows for just £16!
