Dutch theatre maker and visual artist Dries Verhoeven invites you to step on board his political ghost train in this immersive excursion into our contemporary culture of fear, bringing you face to face with the ever-increasing threats and paranoia engulfing a society obsessed with safety and perfection.
Audience members will be taken through a tour of today’s angst-fuelling media landscape that’s so flawlessly exploited by politicians, terrorists, marketers and fake news. This 21st century theatrical haunted house comes to London for the first time following sell-out performances at festivals across Europe.
Described by the Observer as a ‘visionary athlete who has taken an extraordinary imaginative leap’, Dries Verhoeven is a world-renowned artist who makes installations and performances highlighting the socio-political reality we live in. His work Life Streaming was presented at LIFT 2010.
'JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU’RE SAFE THIS EARTH-SHATTERING PERFORMANCE INSTALLATION KNOCKS THE WIND EVEN FURTHER OUT OF YOU. BREATHTAKING!'
