Dictatorship: XX Century

Studio T and 274 Theatre Company

'Dictatorship: XX century', a unique devised physical theatre performance created by Israeli Studio T and based on Stanley Milgram's Behavioral Study of Obedience, will be an unforgettable experience. It is an exploration into the anatomy of oppression, underscoring the psychological mayhem induced by the oppressive structures. Through a powerful visual narrative, the profound effects of power, manipulation, and submission between individuals and nations are explored. The show delves into the possible embodiment of invisible dictatorships that exist on personal, political, and global levels. By embodying the disastrous consequences of dehumanising systems, Studio T hopes to open a platform for discourse on vital concerns of our contemporary societies.

This piece of physical theatre made by Israeli theatre Studio T would particularly appeal to those who are interested in the intersection of theatre, science, and political philosophy. Loosely based on Stanley Milgram's behavioural study of obedience, the performance seeks to help us better understand authoritarianism and its implications in the modern era in a unique way that combines thought-provoking live performance with interactive multimedia elements. Audience members can expect to be deeply immersed in an examination of the psychology of politics and power during both World War I and II. It's particularly appropriate for mature audiences who are interested in a more interactive form of theatre that engages the audience and promotes reflection. Theatregoers who are intrigued by issues such as the influence of powerful elite on public opinion, the inner-workings of authoritarian regimes, and the legacy of dictatorships in the XX century will likely be most enthralled by this performance.
