fanSHEN: The Justice Syndicate

The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum

Saturday 17 November at:  13:45-15.45

Sunday 18 November  at:   12.00 – 14.00, and 14.00 – 16.00

A piece of playable theatre drawing on a jury format. A top surgeon accused of a serious crime. Conviction would mean planned operations will not go ahead – and the evidence is far from conclusive.

Power and privilege; trust and technology; thought and action.
How will you vote?

The Justice Syndicate is a collaboration between recovering theatre company fanSHEN, computational artist Joe McAlister and neuroscientist Dr Kris De Meyer.

Like real jury service, this performance is only for 18+.

Trigger warning: The Justice Syndicate contains both discussion of sexual assault and explicit description of consensual sexual activity.
