EVEN THE DEVIL HAS DEMONS
Pumping, adrenaline-filled dance and an original, live techno-inspired soundtrack set the scene for either a bad trip or a bad dream. Our political leaders enter a pulsing, rave-like space and shuffle side-by-side with the demons of their past, present and future.
The private boarding schools of Britain have long been considered the training ground for political leadership, but these institutions leave a lasting mark and the damage trickles down.
This dark, psychological show examines the experiences of the privileged elite and its impact on wider society. Even The Devil Has Demons asks: Is this who we want in power? Can the young people of today lead with compassion over cruelty and bring order to chaos?
