_DSC0758 11222331_10207301580688449_2252543235712046749_o

Karl Marx has had enough of seeing his revolution taken over by opportunists organizing each time a new priesthood and a new hierarchy, with excommunications and indexes, with inquisitions and firing squads. He is disgusted by media declaring him dead again and again. Karl Marx is back to remind us that his ideas are more alive than ever. He revisits memories of his courageous life and revolutionary theories. We learn about his family, his struggles and the boils on his arse.

The “infinite monkey theorem” hypothesizes that if a monkey is left to tap at a keyboard at random it will eventually produce a great literary work. Roberto Bacchilega, Silvia Terribili & Grainne Delaney bring to life this piece of monkey business by American playwright David Ives: a dry satirical look at the meaning of human evolution, from the perspective of a chimp

Oranges & Olive Pits – The Journal

Spindlevine Presents:
Friday 11th September, 20:00
a storytelling of the Spanish Revolution with Dolan Jones and Sam Morris
As Spain erupts in civil war and revolution, two brothers tell each other stories to help explain the changing world around them. Their mythologies swiftly unravel, and when the civil war within the anti-fascist resistance tears them apart, they risk facing each other across the barricades.
Spindlvine, a collective of storytellers and musicians based in Amsterdam, will travel for food.
Be warned: you might THINK you are not interested in stories, and try to pass by, but like vines, our tales spin themselves around you. You’ll be stuck. You won’t be able to go anywhere until you’ve listened all the way through!

The Land Between (Documentary Film)

Free Fringe Festival at AstaroTheatro


THE LAND BETWEEN (Documentary Film)

Monday 7th September 20:00

THE LAND BETWEEN offers an insight into the hidden and desperate lives of Sub-Saharan African migrants living in the mountains of northern Morocco. For most, their dream is to enter Europe by jumping a highly-militarised barrier into Melilla, a Spanish enclave on the African continent. With unique and unprecedented access, this film intimately documents the everyday life of these migrants trapped in limbo, as well as the extreme violence and constant mistreatment they face from both the Moroccan and Spanish authorities. It also explores many universal questions; including how and why people are prepared to risk everything, including their life, to leave their country, their family and friends, in search of a new and better life
