THE CONUNDRUM OF THE REVOLUTION

2018 marks one hundred years since the end of World War I- 2018 is also the centenary of the Soviet Revolution, the Social Revolution in Germany, and death of Rosa Luxembourg. “Red Rosa,” is still an inspiration for rebellion, in an age when rebellion against everything inhumane, violent, and exploitative – is invisible. She still raises the question: where is the rebellion, is it possible? [2018]

The performance creates an alternative reality in which Rosa Luxembourg gets to meet revolutionaries and poets from across the world- four revolutionaries – Rosa, the Red Army Faction’s member Ulrike Meinnhof, Castro’s comrade-in-arms Camilo Cienfuegos, and Lenin’s assassin Fanny Kaplan, as well as the poets Kharms and Mayakovsky, walk through time and speak to one another, and to us, “from the other side.” Their spirits still breathe down our backs. What are they saying to us today? What is justified in order to gain power and preserve the revolution? How far can the revolution go in preserving its own values?
