We are delighted to take part at Truth to Power Cafe at the Roundhouse, London on the 30-31st October:
Who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?
That’s the question award-winning theatre maker Jeremy Goldstein will pose to up to 20 participants in his ‘Truth to Power Café’ this autumn.
This new international performance event is intercut with monologue, poetry, image, music, memoir and live and spontaneous testimony from participants rising up in the name of free speech and political activism.
Over these two shows appearances from participants include Activist of the Year Dan Glass; Otto and Ruby of the Radical Beauty Project; Artsadmin artistic director Judith Knight; artists Xavier de Sousa and Reece Lyons; journalist and co-founder of Justice for Women Julie Bindel; and Holocaust survivor Ruth Barnett.
Roundhouse Resident Spoken Word Artists Katie Gill, Chifa K, Chloe Florence and Tatenda Matsvai will also be saying their piece.
Full details of the participants are listed below, please note the line-up is subject to change.
the revolutionary potential of theatre at its best and most direct
Speaking truth to power has its origins in the anti-war movement, and is now widely accepted to mean saying something to those in authority or position of trust who don’t want to hear it. Is it to your parents, a sibling, politician, lover, landlord, religious leader, boss, banker or simply your best friend? It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.
