About the event

Theatre Conspiracy presents Foreign Radical

Winner of Edinburgh Fringe First Award 2017 and Critics’ Choice Innovation prize/ 2015 Jessie Awards

Thirty participants are invited into an intriguing theatrical game world, exploring security, profiling, freedom of expression and privacy in the age of cyber surveillance. Mobile throughout the performance, participants collaborate, compete, investigate, debate and spy on each other.

Depending on personal and group responses, participants witness different perspectives on the action, gathering evidence from dramatic scenes and documentary media that colour their views and how they play the game. Each performance is unique in that the audience dynamic influences the outcome.

A multimedia tour de force in English, Farsi and Arabic, this radical game of secrets is “a show that gets under your skin.” ***** – The Scotsman

“Entertaining, insightful and you can expect to come away feeling very acutely reminded of our shared humanity.” — Irish Times
