The battle for hearts and minds starts here.
How does culture become a weapon of warfare? How is a Britney Spears song connected to a global network of secret prisons? How does radical philosophy become military strategy?
In a cabin built from the same materials as Camp X-Ray, the temporary detention facility at Guantanamo bay, and with the same internal dimensions of a detainee’s cell, Extraordinary Rendition is a piece for one person at a time that uses video, sound and live performance to interrogate the kind of colonisation that begins with the battle for hearts and minds.
This is a 15-minute performance for 1 person at a time, booking required.
Please note that this performance contains flashing lights.
Created, Written and Performed by: Gemma Paintin & James Stenhouse.
