Death is no longer a moment. It is a process. A process that can be reversed.
Two friends, talking (and singing) about what happens when we die, how we think about dying, and most importantly, how some of us might be brought back. Performed by Jon Spooner and Chris Thorpe, Am I Dead Yet? is filled with stories and songs about death and dying and about how we don’t talk about it enough. It’s inspired by research into contemporary developments in resuscitation science and made in collaboration with Emergency Care doctors and professionals.
Am I Dead Yet? is the new show from Unlimited Theatre who were last at the Bush with MONEY the game show and who have developed an impressive reputation for creating new work that combines heart-warming and mind-bending storytelling with leading edge developments in science.
Is it ever better to censor than cause offense?
Exhibit B, The City, the Tricycle Theatre… Several high profile cases this past summer have ignited a debate about artistic censorship in the UK.
Exploring the rights of the artist to free expression, and examining the role of arts institutions in defending and promoting free expression, our panel will debate whether is it ever better to censor than to cause offence? The panel includes:
Co-produced by Index on Censorship and the Bush Theatre.
RADAR Debates are a post-show event with a difference. Part of our BushGreen Live programme, Debates open up the theatre to a whole host of special guests and are designed to offer audiences lively debate around the work on stage.
