The Believers Are But Brothers

Date: 30 Mar 2019

In a time where old orders are collapsing: from the postcolonial nation-states of the Middle East, to the EU and the American election, tech-savvy and extremist groups rip up political certainties.

This multi-media, Fringe First award-winning performance envelops its audience in the digital realm, weaving us into the webs of resentment, violence and power networks that are eating away at the structures of the twentieth century.

Resident Associate Director at Sheffield Theatres, and an Associate Director of Theatre in the Mill, Javaad creates work from discussions and workshops with communities that don’t usually engage with mainstream theatre.

The Believers Are But Brothers also plays IPAC, Wollongong, May 16-18.
