Can We Talk About This?

DV8 Physical Theatre

Can We Talk About This? by DV8 Physical Theatre

Conceived and directed by Lloyd Newson. Can We Talk About This? is a new physical theatre work from DV8, exploring freedom of speech, censorship and Islam.

From the 1989 book burnings of Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses, to the murder of filmmaker Theo Van Gogh and the controversy of the 'Muhammad cartoons' in 2005, DV8' s production will examine how these events have reflected and influenced muticultural policies, press freedom and censorship. Can We Talk About This? is based on real voices and interviews with radical groups and leading figures from across the religious, political, cultural and social spectrum, including MPs, high profile authors and journalists.

Co-produced by Théatre de la Ville and Festival d´Automne, Paris, National Theatre and Dansens hus Stockholm.
