Visit the accompanying website Culture is Ordinary to watch the film of the project and extracts of the performance.
The purpose of CLASS The Elephant in the room is to investigate the inherent social conditions that exist in the creative industries today; social conditions such as social class and geographic location that can influence and determine a career in the arts. It will pay attention to the contradictions that play out where class is considered, and how these contradictions continue to reproduce and reinforce class divisions.
