THEATREVisual artist and performer Hetain Patel returns with his fifth show for the stage. Following international exhibitions and performances (Venice Biennale, Candoco Dance Company) this new one-man show builds on the critically acclaimed American Boy.
Playing provocatively with race, gender and identity, American Man imagines a not-too-distant-future where celebrity power and political correctness have reached new heights. A future where Barack Obama’s post-Presidential role is CEO of Apple, while Stephen Hawking and Oprah Winfrey shape policies.
Combining seamless vocal and physical impersonations with his characteristic wit and humour, Hetain Patel presents a dystopian outlook on a world where personal freedom walks hand in hand with guilt.
