ARMING THE WORLD

World Premiere with ice & fire and Teatro Vivo . Performed with Waterloo Festival, Greenbelt Festival, Tramshed,  The Albany, Cheslea Theatre, Stratford Circus, Underbelly Southbank and locations around central London.

#ARMINGTHEWORLD, a co-production by Teatro Vivo, ice&fire and the designer takis, brings the shadowy world of our governments involvement in arms trading out into the light of day. Part street theatre performance, part fashion show, part interactive educational exposition, part modern day agit -prop, all in the name of raising public awareness of the significant role HM Government and the British Arms Trade play in #ARMINGTHEWORLD.  The show is supported by an online campaign to set the ficitional reality of the #ARMINGTHEWORLD Outreach Team.
