1984

Our version of 1984, with music composed by Max Wilson and projections directed and filmed by Rajee, was performed at The Bloomsbury Theatre and at Zoo Venues, Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In an age of CCTV cameras, prosecuted whistleblowers and a biased media, this deeply relevant production disorientates, excites and gives audiences a real experience.
