Adam Kammerling presents Shall We Take This Outside

Everyone wants to be a hero, right? Heroes are cool. Heroes make the world better. They don’t lose their keys or drop their phones in the toilet. They get stuff done. But heroes are usually men. And they’re usually pretty handy in a scrap. In fact, a lot of heroes are really into fighting.

National poetry slam champion and battle-rapping cyborg, Adam Kammerling, teams up with real life super-humans, Eric Mitchell and Jacob Smart from Parkour Dance, to explore the effect of fictional hero behaviour on real-world attitudes to violence. Adam, Eric and Jacob fuse spoken word and movement to dig into the strange contradictions that lie between reality and fiction and illuminate the effect it has on our lives
