  • 1984 Now

    Headlong in association with the Cultural Institute at King's | Nov. 22, 2014

    Saturday 22 November 2014
    1pm – 5pm
    Anatomy Lecture Theatre, King's College London

    Tickets: Free

    People often refer to the idea that we are living in 1984, but to what extent is that a valid observation about contemporary society?

    In 2013, Headlong collaborated with the Cultural Institute’s at King's on a project to explore the relationship between digital technology and live performance. This partnership resulted in the development of an app, 1984 Digital Double, which explores the nature of contemporary surveillance.

    Headlong and the Cultural Institute at King's invite you to join a group of digital experts and innovative artists for a day of platform panels exploring a wide range of questions about digital technology, live performance and surveillance.

    Speakers include: Dr Btihaj Ajana (King’s), Dr Claudia Aradau (King’s), Tony Bunyan (Statewatch), Professor Alex Callinicos (King’s), Robert Delamere (Digital Theatre), Jeremy Herrin (Headlong), Robert Icke (Co-adaptor and co-director of 1984), Professor Tim Jordan (Sussex University), Dawn King (Playwright), Duncan Macmillan (Co-adaptor and co-director of 1984), Dr Dan Mcquillan (Goldsmiths College), Tassos Stevens (Coney), Simon Vans-Colier, Oliver Cole and Spiros Andreou (TOR Project).

  • Symposium on Radical Adaptation

    In association with the Almeida Theatre and TAPRA | Feb. 15, 2014

    Saturday 15 February 2014
    9.30am-5.15pm
    Almeida Theatre

    Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan’s radical new adaptation of 1984 explores how Orwell’s novel is as applicable to the here and now as it ever was.

    Join the creators of 1984 and a panel of theatre experts to explore how the process of creating a truly successful adaptation is often a very different thing from delivering the version people expect.
