About this show

Korach follows the history of anarchists who have been wiped out because they frightened the government. Inspired by the Books of Moses, the Jewish Mishnas, and also the Psalms, Korach begins with the Israelites' trek through the desert and eventual uprising against Moses, lead by Korach and his tribe. Using live action and film, the play also looks at anarchists in Spain circa 1939, Russia circa 1921, and modern day. Korach is about the necessity of any state to eliminate dissident elements within it if it is to survive - and the responsibility of revolutionaries to present their ideas in a way as to not incite violence.
