Foreign Radical draws 30 participants into an intriguing theatrical game exploring security, profiling, privacy and freedom of expression in the age of cybersurveillance. Mobile throughout the performance, the participants collaborate, compete, investigate, debate and spy on each other. 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).
