Music theatre goes to the barricades
History has seen revolution take root across the globe, at different points in time, in various guises and with varying degrees of success. We have now inherited the remains of these radical uprisings and face a different type of question: how do we move forward? Is it true that we need the rubble of the past to build a new and different kind of world? Is revolution still the best vehicle for change?
