BE FESTIVAL - British Enough? (Site Specific / Immersive) - Birmingham Rep
Dates & Times
There are currently no events listed for this show.
Description

For those born in the UK, British identity is a loose and changeable concept. For those seeking citizenship from abroad, however, it's the opposite: subject to the government's “Life in the UK” test, there are fixed, itemised cornerstones — as decided by the immigration authorities — which are deemed critical for fitting into British society.

In British Enough?, Kristina Cranfeld works with John and Lucy Harrigan of Foolish People theatre company to propose an extreme, future manifestation of this test. Built around Kristina's video installation, Manufactured Britishness (also exhibiting at the festival), it's a site-specific, immersive piece of theatre, developed especially for the festival.

The audience are invited to move through different assessment centres, where they participate in various, often bizarre, demonstrations of British values.
