Pay what you feel

Liberty Hodes presents Hot Commodity

Running Time: 1 hour

Where: Main Theatre

In a world in which we are measured by our productivity and primed by our surroundings to perform ourselves as brands, it is no wonder that anxiety is at an all time high. Our planet is in a state of crisis and it’s actually really hard to process whether buying a reusable water bottle is helping at all or just playing into the hands of the big companies commodifying the things which scare us. In a multimedia, genre straddling show, Liberty Hodes; Comedian, performance maker, and co-host of A Comedy Night that Passes The Bechdel Test explores the impact of late capitalism on our lives, ethics and consciences. IS everything going to be ok if we swap out our cotton buds? Will buying expensive things in the name of “self care” cure the anxieties which are  perpetuated by capitalism? (spoiler alert definitely not lol). Maybe we will find the answers together! maybe we will feel scared and sad. Maybe we will just buy more things.

Alphabetti Theatre

Alphabetti Theatre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was created by Ali Pritchard in 2012. We create, produce, and programme new, original work from emerging artists across the performing arts, championing work in Music, Theatre, Comedy and Poetry. We strive to make theatre that is relatable and accessible to all, and are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves, physically, mentally and conceptually – we believe that by challenging ourselves we inevitably challenge the audience, creating engaging and original experiences.
