The global gap between rich and poor grows. As the world is decaying, the spawn of the powerful dance like everyone is watching.

From the company behind the Fringe First award-winning The Believers Are But Brothers, this is a darkly comedic, urgent new play about entitlement, consumption and digital technology, exploring cycles of historic decline and rebirth and the ways societies try to reproduce themselves. Written and directed by artist, writer and activist Javaad Alipoor.

Co-commissioned by Diverse Actions, Theatre in the Mill, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Battersea Arts Centre and Bush Theatre.
