Dismantle this Room

by Nina Segal
A Bush Theatre production by Project 2036
Sold out
World Premiere

Stage a violent revolution. Take them down from the inside. Blow the whistle. Or leave it all behind and entirely start over.

Dismantle This Room is an escape-the-room experience giving you the opportunity to interrogate – and consequently dismantle – the inherited (and often invisible) power structures in theatre. Which raises the question – what should we build in their place?

No matter how much or how little you know about the theatre industry, it will be a provocative and uniting experience. Created by Nina Segal (In The Night Time (Before The Sun Rises), Big Guns), Milli Bhatia (Hijabi Monologues London) and Ingrid Marvin.

Dismantle This Room forms one part of Project 2036’s year-long investigation into power in theatre – and the ways in which it intersects with gender, race, class, economics and education. As an experiment around ideas of power and privilege, there are three ticket prices – £1, £3 and £5. We ask all participants to select the ticket price that they feel corresponds to their personal level of privilege – whether that be white privilege, male privilege, economic privilege, able-bodied privilege, cis privilege, class privilege or any other marker of privilege you wish to consider. A higher ticket price corresponds to a higher level of societal privilege – and vice versa. If you’re privileged – please pay for it.

The performance lasts approximately one hour and involves moving between spaces. If you have access requirements that you’d like to discuss, please contact [email protected] and we will aim to do everything possible to accommodate.

Daniel Bailey: Reflections on the last year at the Bush

On Monday 16th March 2020, like most venues across the city, we closed our doors in the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic. It was a difficult time for us and we weren’t sure how things were going to pan out, but looking back I’m proud that the Bush team found ways to keep connected with…
