Cork Midsummer Festival, Project Arts Centre and Ontroerend Goed present
TM is a new digital experience created by acclaimed Belgian theatre company Ontroerend Goed. Made in collaboration with theatres from across the world, this is a live interactive one-to-one experience exploring media manipulation, populist ideology and conspiracy theories.
“We have fallen upon evil times and the world has become very old and wicked.
Politics are very corrupt. Children are no longer respectful to their parents.”
King Naram Sin of Chaldea – 3800 BC
Today, a secret cell of our movement has executed a successful worldwide operation.
We hold the victory in our hands and our overwhelming march is on the rise.
We will triumph and fight the infidels. Our brothers and sisters are among you.
We are many. We are global. We are TM.
Due to the live and interactive nature of this production, it is not currently being offered with captions or audio description.
