About the Performance
Farah Saleh and Professor Victoria Tischler are investigating the collective mental health of the residents in the UK after Brexit. They are interested in what led to that vote, but more importantly in what is happening right now: the fear, anger, polarization of the society, the explicit racism and even more in what will happen next. Trying to understand the famous endlessly repeated phrase by Teresa May Brexit means Brexit! What does that exactly mean? Where the threshold between democracy, dictatorship and fear is led campaigns?
