The Magnificent Mind of Marcus
Currently in development
Brexit, multiculturalism, and social and economic problems are forming a new identity for the UK – but what about the individuals whose lives are changing because of these complex matters?
As a multinational group, diverse in age, gender, sexuality and religion, this has provoked a need to explore collective and individual identity. How do we define ourselves? How do others define us? And what happens when these two viewpoints are in conflict?
During our residencies we will explore what labels we carry and what effect they have on our lives.
