How media savvy are you? Do you believe everything you read on social media? In today’s world, social media is increasingly used to manipulate users for dangerous political purposes and questionable corporate interests.
In a fun and challenging environment of game play, the workshop Conspiracy Now invites a small, safely distanced audience to investigate critical issues in current events. This interactive documentary style of theatre is designed to empower audience members through participation that creates empathy between strangers rather than amplifying polarization.
In Conspiracy Now among other current affairs and issues discussed, there will be an in-depth look at people’s freedom to assemble, with a focus on the Farmer Protests in India. By creating a space for nuanced conversations, Theatre Conspiracy have created a fun, challenging workshop where participants can empathize with one another in real time and share their thoughts…and perhaps come away with new ones.
