Searching for Cowardice

What would mass recruitment look like in World War Three? Using the movement of the “Order of the White Feathers” in WW1, we look at how social media would play a role in present-day youth recruitment. We follow Joe, a sixteen-year-old boy who is stuck between expectations and reality. Through physical theatre and movement, we see Joe's struggle with social cowardice, battling with the expectations from the three different influencers in his life.

New Creatives is supported by Arts Council England and BBC Arts.
