Part of the Fringe Central Events Programme for Fringe participants. 'Be a provocative warrior, not an honourable citizen', reflects Egyptian surgeon turned satirist Bassem Youssef. Following a prerecorded provocation from January’s ISPA Congress, a panel will convene to reflect on the meaning of identity and free speech and what this means for one’s practice, community, and the performing arts. Does art help make sense of conflicting values? How do ever-changing identities in an increasingly polarised world impact the arts? We’ll reflect, interject, and shape this conversation together. Followed by networking lunch.
