Who is telling the truth?

How do they tell it?

Pirate artists take over the national broadcaster's newsroom for a day and play their favourite media roles. What information will they prioritise as the editors in the newsroom? Can artists sharpen the citizen's nose? Or are they better off dancing the news?

Outlandish Theatre Platform honours the bravery of journalists who risk their lives to dig up the dirt and tell us about it. The artists understand that not all news makes it into the newsroom. They also believe we are what we are being fed. What happens when the diet changes?

Performed in English and Arabic

Contains themes of late capitalism, systemic violence
