This timely and electrifying new art experiment ponders one of contemporary life’s great questions – what if women ruled the world?

About

At the end of his remarkable film Dr Strangelove, Stanley Kubrick foresaw a post-apocalyptic future in which dominant alpha males would repopulate the Earth, with ten women assigned to every man. Yael Bartana’s groundbreaking film and performance project, created with a team including performance director Vicky Featherstone and writer Abi Morgan, presents the opposite scenario, placing women in charge of a world in desperate need of a new vision.

In a war room, a group of 11 women will be confronted by some of the urgent crises of our time. Each night, a professional cast will be joined on stage by a different group of female experts: scientists, politicians, activists and thinkers of global reputation. Together, they will spend the evening trying to solve the global emergency as the clock ticks…
