TERRORISM

(writer)

you win I am the monster I have been sent to warn you

in three days you will all be dead

TERRORISM attempts to broaden our understanding of terrorism through a consideration of context and inter-subjectivity, an examination of mediatised terror, and a wary suspicion of state-sanctioned torture.

TERRORISM is written for a cast of 3-7 people. Slipping between torturer and tortured, reporter and everyday civilian, chorus and character, the work interrogates the thin barriers that separates these categories, finding flaws in the way we conceptualise our safety and innocence within a Western liberal democracy.
