How to Start a Riot

How to Start a RiotT0364675496
Why were some parts of the UK set alight in 2011, whilst many others were left untouched? Who is present at a riot? If the actions are 'mindless', what's in the mind? Three performers use text and torchlight and to unpick the presumed causes of civil unrest. Based on the work of leading crowd and social psychologists Professor Stephen Reicher, Dr. Clifford Stott, How to Start a Riot seeks answers to questions ignored in the post-riot political rhetoric - rhetoric which has remained remarkably similar for centuries.
