Today, a secret cell from our movement has executed a successful worldwide operation. We hold the victory in our hands. We will triumph over the infidels.
Our brothers and sisters are among you.
We are many.
We are global
We are TM.
If you're wondering what TM stands for and how you can become a member, we're happy to invite you to an explorative talk—no obligations.
On a daily basis, we're confronted with people who don't think the way we think. From COVID-sceptics to climate change deniers and political extremists, time and again their existence confirms that the "other" is seemingly diametrically opposed to us. "They" assert themselves as the voice of an overwhelming majority, while we only find connections within our small bubbles. But, to what extent do we really differ from this "other"?
A co-production with Belgian performance company Ontroerend Goed and other partners around the world, TM is an intimate and participatory live digital experience that transcends geographical and ideological boundaries, inviting us to focus on our common ground as humans in an increasingly polarised world.
