How far is too far? In regard to the treatment and interrogation of suspected terrorists or criminals, is torture ever justified? Are these the actions of a society that is supposed to value human rights and fair treatment?
Drumhead was a site-specific commentary on the ramifications of legalised torture. A series of devised rehearsals led the creative process as well as providing a real understanding of both the authority and victim.
Removed from their comfort zone, the audience were taken to a remote location and presented with a piece of interactive theatre. Reports, real case studies and events informed the actors presentation of this challenging and controversial subject. A portion of Drumhead’s profit went to Amnesty International.
First presented in May 2010 in collaboration with the Tron Theatre as part of Mayfesto.
