o this is exciting. Dutch theatre maker and visual artist Dries Verhoeven’s much-praised installation Phobiarama comes to King’s Cross this week – and it sounds brilliant (if perhaps a bit terrifying).
Step on board what can only be described as a “political ghost train” for a genuinely immersive excursion into our contemporary culture of fear, bringing you face to face with the ever-increasing threats and paranoia engulfing a “society obsessed with safety and perfection”.
You’ll be whisked through a tour of today’s angst-fuelling media landscape so “flawlessly exploited” by politicians, terrorists, marketers and fake news. In short, it’s a 21st century theatrical haunted house. And it lands in the capital after sell-out performances in Europe.
Oh, and you or may not encounter this clown along the way. Hold tight.
