The Believers are but Brothers, online, Until 12 August 2020, from £8.00 - Book now

Created by Javaad Alipoor, The Believers are but Brothers uses WhatsApp to take audiences on a journey into an online world of fantasy, violence and radicalisation.

Old orders are collapsing, from the post-colonial nation-states of the Middle East, to the EU and the American election. And through everything, tech-savvy and bloodthirsty groups run through European drawn borderlines.

Meanwhile, a generation of young men, find themselves burning with resentment, without the money, power and sex they think they deserve; this crisis of masculinity leads them on a journey into an online world of fantasy, violence and reality.

Javaad Alipoor spent time exploring how ISIS and the alt-right radicalise online. Extraordinary and fascinating, The Believers are but Brothers tells the story through documentary, interactivity and fiction.

For this interactive performance, audiences will require an internet connection, a computer/ tablet and a smartphone with WhatsApp installed.

Performed as part of Electric Dreams Online, the digital festival runs for three weeks this summer.
