We Are People – An Exhibition of The Democratic Set

BACK TO BACK THEATRE

Over eight years, BACK TO BACK THEATRE has worked with 28 communities to create a series of short films that explore the ideals of equality and freedom. This exhibition captures 12 of these films, each a portrait of a community, exposing their differences and the similarities that connect us all.

Disturbingly obvious and tantalisingly strange, THE DEMOCRATIC SET uses a custom-made film set and a neutral room with two opposing doors. Authoring a unique living snapshot of a community at a particular moment in time, THE DEMOCRATIC SET invites each participant to untangle what an uncensored space means to them, with each viewer surprised and seduced by the mysterious, funny, poignant and provocative sets as they pan the screen.

Presented by The SUBSTATION and BACK TO BACK THEATRE.
