‘To act is to begin something new,’ said Hannah Arendt, one of the greatest thinkers of all time who coined the concept of the ‘banality of evil’.

‘I am (not) a monster’ investigates the act of thinking in the twenty-first century as well as fears associated with it. An original and unapologetic performance on political theorist Hannah Arendt (1906-1975), whose book The Origins of Totalitarianism (1951) and essays such as Truth and Politics (1967) are introduced as ‘urgently’ relevant to our times – with a recent spike of interest in her work, now translated into dozens of languages
