202 Eyre Street, S1 4QZ Sheffield
Have you ever seen a polar bear in the flesh? Been close enough to notice just how white these magnificent mammals are? Here is your chance to get up close and personal — remove your shoes, coats and bags, as you are about to encounter the Arctic’s whitest predator, with black skin.

Join a well-trained member of staff as we enter the polar bear’s natural habitat and experience this animal like never before. Be one of the privileged few to say they have pet, played with, and fed a polar bear.

This is an audience led participatory performance that uses the excitement of a polar bear encounter to explore race, identity and the community.

“an extraordinary charged and disturbing meditation on cultural stereotypes and perceptions and fears” — Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“a terrifyingly good show” – Megan Vaughan, Synonyms of Churlish

Jamal Harewood is a live artist who creates temporary communities through participatory events, and believes that these events should be a playful experience that allows everyone to get involved. The performances created focus on ideas of identity and race within the community. He has a keen interest in abolishing the performer/audience hierarchy that frequently occurs within theatre.
