have worked with their long-time collaborator, visual artist Adam York Gregory
, to continue their socially-engaged exploration of power, democracy, truth-telling, protest, privacy, conspiracy, and control.
Expanding on ideas explored in their recent, critically acclaimed theatre works (A Machine they’re Secretly Building and The Audit or Iceland, a modern myth), A Dangerous Thing wants to punch its way out of the screen and into our homes
It wants to shake us up, to wake us up, and to hunt down all those insidious lies, hiding in plain sight, and running ahead of us with their boots on.
Mashing and melding animation styles, original sound and composition, contemporary performance and story-telling, A Dangerous Thing is coming, and it cannot be stopped.
AGE RECOMMENDATION: 14+ | Some swearing and complex themes that younger audiences may find challenging.
