An electronic maze of fantasists, meme culture, 4chan, the alt-right and extremism.
Javaad Alipoor's Fringe First award-winning play envelops its audience in a digital realm, exploring the blurry and complex world of extremists, journalists and fantasists. This bold one-man show weaves together their stories in a web of resentment, violence and power.
**** “There’s a matter-of-fact humour to much of what [Javaad] Alipoor tells us, but also a cold horror – this [is a] show for our times” – The Independent
**** “Boldly conceived and gut-twistingly immediate… Shines a light on a festering corner of the internet – a 21st-century crucible of hate – then observes how fetid tendrils are snaking out into the mainstream. It is, in a way, terrifying.” – The Stage
