'How I basked in the fantasy of self-imposed exile, of temporary exile, of wonderful exile, of come-home-whenever-you-choose kind of exile.'

Lost in the bliss of foreign travel, Imogen joyfully succumbs to the spoils of Western privilege. Returning to Scotland, a harsh society confronts her. Dangerous politicians prevail, the media sells fictions masquerading as reality, an ocean of social media sympathy pours forth for Western terror victims, yet backs turn on the migrant crisis. What staggering hypocrisy.

Through examining who is tying our blindfolds and questioning why we let them, #Hypocrisy reminds us that in complacency lies the most heart-stopping terror.

___

#Hypocrisy is the debut collaboration between performance poet Imogen Stirling, and musician/composer Ross Somerville.

WITH SUPPORT FROM VICTORIA MCNULTY AND THE NARCISSIST COOKBOOK.

'An immersive meditation on those aspects of reality we choose to turn a blind eye to' (Darren 'Loki' McGarvey)
