I am the problem

This world is full of things that have the potential to make us feel guilty: procrastination on social networks, bingeing Netflix shows, eating meat, hanging up on our parents, buying Huawei smartphones, expelling the Sudeten Germans, or even feeling (or not feeling) guilty.

I Am the Problem is an original performance that has emerged from previous inquiries into manifestations of guilt on social media networks and the clash between what we want to be and what we are. Theatre artists Irina Andreeva, Wayne Jordan and Tinka Avramova invite spectators to a 60-minute performance where we will take a selfie of the shared emotion of guilt and, finally, make an attempt to become part of the solution rather than remaining part of the problem.

Audience: adult, children 15+
