A performance about the privileged position of white people and their lack of sense of it.

In Here We Go Again (White Male Privilege), three educated, white Western Europeans nearing their forties react to a held-up mirror reflecting an unfashionable past and a complex present. A mirror they find increasingly difficult to look past. From their modern office, three colleagues try to define their role in the racism debate. Gradually, they sink further and further into a moral quagmire, where fatigue and hypersensitivity are always around the corner. A human zoo with white people.
