We all have a nationality.
For some, it's like eye-colour.
For others it's a straitjacket.
For some, it fits the borders of a state.
Others want to draw new borders so they fit.
Some people have it taken away against their will.
Some reject nationality altogether. I know I've wanted to.
But I'm wondering about whether that's the right thing to do. If I reject it, I wonder who I'm handing power to. And what they might do with it.
When people talk about 'national values', I wonder what they really mean.
Status is Chris talking, and maybe singing, about all that.
A rehearsed reading of a new show from the multi Fringe First winning team that created Confirmation: written and performed by Chris Thorpe (Unlimited Theatre, Third Angel) developed with and directed by Rachel Chavkin (The TEAM).
Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre and Warwick Arts Centre and Supported by the Goethe-Institut London.
Press quotes on 2014 Fringe First winner, Confirmation:
"...an 80 minute-show that makes the brain both hurt and buzz...Confirmation is a show that lets nobody off the hook: not us, and definitely not Thorpe." The Guardian ★★★★
"Rachel Chavkin’s fast-moving, kinetic production offers us an absolutely compelling performance from a man who is fast becoming one of the most powerful performers in the UK." The Scotsman ★★★★
"Thorpe and director Rachel Chavkin energetically take a liberal Fringe audience to the edge of the abyss of belief and hang them over the side in a conversation for our times." The Independent ★★★★
Running time: 60-90 minutes
Recommended age 14+
