PPE: Philosophy, Politics and Economics: a microplay about the power of physical gestures.

Written by Tim Price, directed by Hamish Pirie and choreographed by Ann Yee

PPE, explores the way that physical gestures are used by politicians: the specific techniques and trademark moves that perhaps emphasize key points during political debates.  Although based upon the body language of: Nigel Farage, President Obama and David Cameron, the microplay brings to light the way most politicians tend to adopt and use theatrical techniques and gestures during a political speech.
