What the fuck is a national identity?
What exactly constitutes a ‘nation’?
And why the hell are so many ready to die for it?
The hit tour of Xavier de Sousa’s new show, POST, arrives for the first time in Norwich.
We live in an ever-shifting political and geographical landscape. Some believe we are heading towards a world without borders, without countries or nations. At the same time, many others vouch for protectionism and more borders. But very rarely we talk about the foundations of those borders and the influence they have on their citizens.
With POST, Xavier de Sousa invites you to join us at the table, eat yummy Portuguese food, drink potent Cachaça, get merry, make new friends and challenge what exactly makes a ‘nation’.
POST is commissioned by Ovalhouse and supported by Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, Bikeshed Theatre, Marlborough Theatre and Tempting Failure Festival. This Tour is supported by Marlborough Theatre, Toynbee Studios and with additional funding by Arts Council England
