"An ingenious show that tears up theatre’s rulebook"
The Guardian

“We have fallen upon evil times and the world has become very old and wicked.
Politics are very corrupt. Children are no longer respectful to their parents.”
King Naram Sin of Chaldea - 3800 BC

Today, a secret cell of our movement has executed a successful worldwide operation.

We hold the victory in our hands and our overwhelming march is on the rise.

We will triumph and fight the infidels. Our brothers and sisters are among you.

Inconspicuous. Invisible.

We are many. We are global. We are TM.

Join us.

TM is a new digital experience created by acclaimed Belgian theatre company Ontroerend Goed who performed their award-winning show £¥€$ (LIES) at the Almeida in 2018. Made in collaboration with theatres from across the world, this is a live interactive one-to-one experience exploring media manipulation, populist ideology and conspiracy theories.

Your support is vital to help secure the future of our theatre in the coming year - each and every penny will make a difference.

Due to the live and interactive nature of this production, it is not currently being offered with captions or audio description. If you have any access requirements or require specific information about the production, please contact our Box Office who will try to assist you.

Line Break

Bookers will be able to access a unique link to the TM platform from within the Recording & Live Streams section of My Account. This will be available on the day of your performance. If you have any problems accessing your My Account section please contact the Box Office.

The majority of the performance is interactive and designed to be done independently, so you will need to login and experience the show on your own.

TM is not compatible with mobile or tablet devices. It is best experienced using Google Chrome web browser on a laptop or computer with good internet connection. You will need to have your camera and microphone on for the duration of the performance, and it’s advised you wear headphones to avoid any distractions.
