The Privileged by Jamal Harewood

18 November 2017
8:00 pm

The Privileged photo by Yarahmadi

Have you ever seen a polar bear in the flesh? Been close enough to notice just how white these magnificent mammals are? Here is your chance to get up close and personal – remove your shoes, coats and bags, as you are about to encounter the Arctic’s whitest predator, with black skin.

Join a well-trained member of staff as we enter the polar bear’s natural habitat and experience this animal like never before. Be one of the privileged few to say they have petted, played with, and fed a polar bear as if you were one of the Arctic keepers.

This is an audience led participatory performance that uses the excitement of a polar bear encounter to explore race, identity and the community.
“An extraordinary charged and disturbing meditation on cultural stereotypes and perceptions and fears” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
“A terrifyingly good show” – Megan Vaughan, Synonyms of Churlish
Tickets available via Eventbrite here.
