In a world that seems drunk with indignation, where passions are running red-hot and significant differences are tearing at the very fabric of society, Hate Actually is an exploration of the ways in which we dislike, despise and detest. The Civilians are back at Joe’s Pub, looking at the ins and outs of who we hate, how we hate, why we hate, and what we do with that hate.
Investigating everything from mild indignations to our deepest detestations, Hate Actually is an interview-based cabaret curated by Civilians R&D Group members Jessie Dean, Kareem Fahmy and Anthony Weigh. It traces a path from the small everyday irritation, to the serious lifelong abhorrence, to the multi-generational grudge. Is to hate to be human? At what cost?
Join The Civilians as we question the darker side of human nature alongside an idea inimical to our current times: maybe it is not love that makes the world go ‘round but Hate Actually.
