The Believers Are But Brothers – Transform 17

Event Details

We live in a time where old orders are collapsing: from the postcolonial nation states of the Middle East, to the EU and the American election. Through it all, tech savvy and extremist groups rip through twentieth century political certainties. Amidst this, a generation of young men find themselves burning with resentment; without the money, power and sex they think they deserve. This crisis of masculinity leads them into an online world of fantasy, violence and reality. Writer and theatre maker Javaad Alipoor spent time in this digital realm, exploring the blurry and complex world of extremists, spies, journalists and fantasists. This bold one-man show weaves together their stories. ?A very special artist, and a very strong voice? ? Madani Younis, Bush Theatre The Believers are but Brothers is presented as part of Transform 17, a festival of bold, local & international theatre – transformfestival.org Warning: Contains disturbing imagery. Age guidance: 16+ Running time: 1hr Co-commissioned by HOME, Manchester, Ovalhouse and Transform, supported by National Theatre Studio and stage@leeds.
