About this event:
[03.04.19] A co-creation from multi-award-winning interactive art pioneers Blast Theory and celebrated site-specific theatre company Hydrocracker, Operation Black Antler looks at the moral implications of the use of undercover officers, as well as the wider ethical questions of when surveillance is justified.
For 40 years British police officers have been undercover inside protest groups. WikiLeaks, the Snowden affair and revelations about the Special Demonstration Squad highlight that controversial methods are in play. Like many previous works from its creators, Operation Black Antler creates a unique perspective on the world of police surveillance and state intrusion, and asks important questions about the role of the individual in society.
Originally co-commissioned by Ideas Test and Brighton Festival, Operation Black Antler has been developed with support from Arts Council England and in partnership with Dramatic Resources and The Chalk Cliff Trust.
