WE is based on Yevgeny Zamyatin's 1924 novel We. Widely acclaimed as a literary masterpiece, We is the founding work of what we've come to recognise as a dystopian sci-fi genre. It was the first book to be banned in Soviet Russian and it served as a direct inspiration for both Huxley's Brave New World and Orwell's 1984.
Provocative, wry, and moving, Zamyatin’s imaginative and poetic meditation on the intricate relationship between human freedom and happiness, though one hundred years old, is highly relevant for the present moment.
Note: The performance will be followed by the talk on Zoom.
