‘Who are you? Who are you really? Can you prove that you are who you are?’
Identity Cases moves the debates over identity politics into specific media court settings. How are identity cases negotiated in court, in theatre, and in the social networks?

Identity Cases is a performance lecture and court game in several acts that shows one thing very clearly: Identity is never a done deal.
