“If surveillance was monaural during the Cold War and became stereophonic in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, it is now quadrophonic. It can’t be reduced to the activity of a single state or even a particular government-industrial complex. We are all now embedded in a veritable matrix of surveillance. It has become surround sound.” — from Participatory Totalitarianism.
Interrogation, written and performed by Director of IPS’ Foriegn Policy In Focus project, John Feffer, is a dark comedy about surveillance and interrogation appearing at the 2014 Capital Fringe Festival..
