Mercury Fur looks to a politically disenfranchised generation and offers them reasons to engage with questions of politics, ethics and society. You are invited to an experimental showcase based on Mercury Fur incorporating live performance, visual art and documentary film that explores how this play affects and reflects the lives of young people in South East London.
