The Justice Syndicate

A top surgeon accused of a serious crime. Conviction would mean planned operations will not go ahead – and the evidence is far from conclusive.

The Justice Syndicate is a piece of playable theatre drawing on a jury format. It asks how we fill in the gaps, how we deal with our preconceptions, and how being part of a group can affect all this.

Power and privilege; trust and technology; thought and action.

The Justice Syndicate is a collaboration with neuroscientist Dr Kris De Meyer and computational artist Joe McAlister. You can read a write-up of the project from Joe's perspective here. There is a film we made about documenting audience-centric performance, using The Justice Syndicate as a case study, here.
