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. Or is this just another case of someone so important they’re above justice?
The Justice Syndicate is a piece of playable theatre drawing on a jury format. It asks how we make decisions, how we deal with our preconceptions, and how much you’d want strangers making judgements about you based on the contents of your phone.
Power and privilege; trust and technology; thought and action.

The Justice Syndicate is a collaboration with neuroscientist Dr Kris De Meyer.
