Make sure you catch the No Feedback theatrical performance, part of the Being Human Festival 2016 this Saturday, 19th November 2016. The event gives an insight into human nature, setting against the backdrop of catastrophes both historic and contemporary. By taking Genocide Watch’s groundbreaking research as the backbone of the production, No Feedback intelligently and sensitively asks audiences to consider their own place on the spectrum of how we relate to one another.
Through a biting and incisive performance, audiences are led through tests, choices and examinations of an imploding society. In one moment helpful and friendly, in the next unsettling, the guides introduce the gentle pull of discrimination that tears at the fabric of everyday life. The performance will take place at Senate House, the building that was home to the Ministry of Information during the Second World War. It will be transformed into a ‘Ministry of Hope and Fear’ for this festival.

If you miss this performance, No Feedback will be at The London Jewish Cultural Centre on 26th of January and is coming to QMUL in February 2017.
Please note that there will further performance announcements soon, as well as recruitment calls for QMUL students who would like to adapt and perform No Feedback later this year.
I was first involved with this production during its premiere in London in May 2015, when I curated a session with a musician and a poet about genocide. I will be facilitating a session on genocide for the audience after the performance of No Feedback at the Being Human Festival. This is a very topical and timely issue, which will be of great interest to Queen Mary students from a variety of disciplines, such as drama, law, politics and history.
