As we enter 2013 the world has not ended, but it remains in disarray. Where are we? How did we get here? Shouldn't we take a look at how we make decisions, how we organize ourselves and see if we can find better solutions to our problems than the existing systems in place?
What have we tried in the past that has mislead us? What are the new ideas for the new world? How can we achieve them together and put aside violence, without the fear of retribution?
How can the theatre help us do this?
We visit the Anarchist collectives of France, Spain and The Ukraine for the 19th and 20th centuries, and find ourselves transported to an immersive and participatory underground outdoor/indoor crossroads of our present moment. The ensemble and the audience work together to manufacture and perform the potential creative possibilities for a post revolutionary world of beauty and non violence.
In the play we also admit to the inadequacy and inefficacy of the voting process, which is the core of our own poorly organized society and is largely responsible for why we do not live in the world we want.
