STATUS

Written by Chris Thorpe, developed with and directed by Rachel Chavkin.

Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre and Warwick Arts Centre and supported by the Goethe-Institut London and the Collaborative Touring Network.

 

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 me 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).

An absolutely compelling performance from a man who is fast becoming one of the most powerful performers in the UK. ★★★★ The Scotsman on Confirmation
