PETER & EMMA’S BOOKDEN CAFE
A multilingual, cross-genre songs collage of theatre montage mounted by two lost souls resurrected for our time.
“In a time when ‘leaders’ are morons and crooks, a book-den resurrects a conspiracy theory.”
The lost souls of Peter Kropotkin and Emma Goldman had a chanced rendezvous in the island of Formosa, looking for a premises for a book den that they dreamt of. It is in fact a camouflage of an info-centre for radical ideas and exchange of implemented deeds of more than just narratives. The collection and archive of global visages of possible sabotages to the present wholly inflammacy of dogmatic domination. The broken chips of humanity remains waiting for an co-exit to somewhere. Between songs, bodily movements, bread and drinks, stories and memoirs, monologues and dialogues, the surreal situationalist jump-cuts of visiting friends and strangers, the unwritten theatre explores the open and participatory essence of freedom. A living theatre of unknown dramatic revolt and the poetry physical.
