‘This is a production of consummate ease and huge sensitivity’. (A Younger Theatre)
‘Top Picks of The Guardian’
What the fuck is a national identity? And what exactly constitutes a ‘nation’? And why the hell are so many ready to die for it?
We live in an ever-shifting political and geographical landscape. Some believe we are heading towards a world without borders, without countries or nations. At the same time, many others vouch for protectionism and more borders.
POST is a new theatre show by Xavier de Sousa inviting you to join us at the table, eat yummy Portuguese food, drink potent Cachaça, get merry, make new friends and challenge what exactly makes a ‘nation’.
POST is a commission by Ovalhouse and supported by Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, developed with Bikeshed Theatre, Marlborough Theatre and Tempting Failure Festival. This Tour is supported by Marlborough Theatre, Toynbee Studios and with additional funding by Arts Council England
*** The performance on the 11 November will be followed by a ‘Queer Migrant Takeover Party’ at Toynbee Studios in partnership with the UK Lesbian and Gay Immigration Group and performing borders.
The party will give migrant friends a platform and rebalance the power to celebrate everything migrants bring to the UK. This special event will feature performances, installations and talks by local migrant artists, in a celebration of multi-culturalism and above all, our migrant communities. All are welcome.
Queer Migrant Takeover Party features contributions and performances from:
UK Lesbian and Gay Immigration Group
