Rory Pilgrim approaches universal themes based on the principle that ‘the personal is political’. He collaborates with a great variety of people. In our age, which is rapidly changing due to digital technology, Pilgrim is interested in the ways in which people come together to express their opinions and to fight for social equality and justice. Using performances, slogans and self-composed music as his weapons, he strives to reappraise terms that have been hollowed out, like love, freedom, safety and solidarity.
