Sleight of Hand 2019

CRUSADE is a brand new piece of work: a dramatic exploration of racial intolerance and inter-religious conflict, drawing parallels between the events of medieval crusading expeditions and recent discord between Islamic and western groups. Working with internationally-recognised artists and involving local communities, the play will investigate the roots of faith wars and racial disharmony, raising challenging questions through a dynamic and visceral production. The early development process is currently based between Watershed Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol, UK and Odin Teatret’s Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium in Holstebro, Denmark.
