A coming of age story told through the eyes of a 10 year old boy growing up in a war-torn context, Haidar is composed around the on-stage creation and destruction of a large metal sculpture. Told in a palindromic framework, the show reverses at a midpoint to explore the same sequence of events through the eyes of Haidar’s female friend, Radiah.
Pendulums mirror the palindrome. Back and forth, back and forth. A suspension in time, space, and mentality. History will always repeat itself, never truly progressing.Our sculpture resembles a boat. Being suspended with a false sense of security. Pushing forward with such strength, only to be taken backwards with the same momentum. Being oppressed within a social and political structural system. Our sculpture symbolises the transition from boy to man, girl to woman. From home to isolation.

A short film set 20 years into the future, Made In Britain exists in a post-Brexit, post-Trump world. The population has continued to spiral out of control and Britain is attempting to "clean up the country” by creating an aryan race of a “purer” british descent. All citizens now must carry a microchipped identity card that states the percentage of British DNA they possess. The government has implemented a ground team of elitist immigration officers and soldiers to find and exterminate any person or animal living in the country under the DNA score of 57%.
