The Privileged by Jamal Harewood

Please note new date: Thurs 1st December, 8pm

Have you ever seen a polar bear in the flesh? Been close enough to notice just how white these magnificent mammals are? Here is your chance to get up close and personal - remove your shoes, coats and bags, as you are about to encounter the Arctic’s whitest predator, with black skin.

Join a well-trained member of staff as we enter the polar bear’s natural habitat and experience this animal like never before. Be one of the privileged few to say they have pet, played with, and fed a polar bear.

This is an audience-led participatory performance that uses the excitement of a polar bear encounter to explore race, identity and the community.
