Just as theatre doors are set to close again for another month, HOME in Manchester will be livestreaming performances, directly to your home.
This Friday (6th November), a live performance of The Believers Are But Brothers will be streaming to audiences on a pay-what-you-decide basis.
Javaad Alipoor’s The Believers Are But Brothers is a journey into the dark side of the internet, in a rapidly changing world. The show takes a timely look at how ISIS and the alt-right radicalise young men online; turning a crisis of masculinity among those burning with resentment about the money, power and sex they think they deserve, into an electronic maze of fantasy, violence, and meme culture.
Javaad Alipoor is a writer and director, and sometimes performer, whose work comes from discussions and workshops with communities that don’t usually engage with mainstream theatre.
As part of the performance, audiences will be invited to join a WhatsApp group for the duration of the show. This is optional but will enhance your experience. After each show, phone numbers will be deleted.
