A performed conversation exploring nationality, internationality, theatre and politics, on Wednesday 27 March 2019 at the Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama


Join two award-winning theatre makers – the UK's Andy Smith and Norway's Amund Sjølie Sveen, as they discuss who they are, who we are and where we are going.

COMMONISM, written by Andy Smith and Amund Sjølie Sveen, is a meeting of two people from different countries in search of some common ground.

It’s a performed conversation – a dialogue that asks questions about nationality, internationality, theatre and politics.

University of Manchester Drama Lecturer, Andy Smith and Amund Sjølie Sveen are award winning theatre makers. Andy is originally from the North of England, Amund from the North of Norway.

In COMMONISM they explore nationality and internationality, capitalism and democracy, future and hope, and the need for change.

They talk about who we are – and who we could be – in the times we live in.

Come and see if we can find some COMMONISM.
