Sat 18th Feb – “Feeding the Darkness”
February 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Lasting 65 minutes in total, the live performance Feeding the Darkness takes its title from the words of the 17th century Quaker James Naylor. It is presented as a series of ‘ministeries’ (monologues, duologues and poems) written from extensive research into state-sanctioned torture-and hopefully challenging our ignorance and avoidance of this disturbing aspect of humanity.
Immersive in style, the content both iterates the Quaker position on torture and encourages us to examine how the UN Convention on Torture (1965) Article 1 is clearly being abused by UK and world-wide governments.
The material is a combination of verbatim interviews and ‘faction’, featuring such diverse human dilemmas as that of Private Lynndie England’s mother, Terri, and a Kurdish asylum-seeker amongst many others.
Free entry, donations welcome.
