There are all sorts of lessons to be learned in life.
How to blend in on a march.
How to crash a board meeting.
How to avoid becoming romantically attached to an undercover police officer.
That sort of thing.

In this playful and provocative show about protest, you'll learn how to do these things and more. Funny, surprising, and just a little bit upsetting, How to Occupy an Oil Rig is for everyone who ever wanted to change anything. And that's everyone.

You get to play with plasticine too.

“**** A funny real and touching […] demonstration about demonstrating…more of my busy, impatient and sceptical generation should go – to understand and salute the idealism, courage and naivety of youth.” The Times

“Daniel Bye's invigorating and playful How to Occupy an Oil Rig is both beautiful and wants to change the world.” Guardian
