Marx is Back (@ The Barricade in Utrecht)

Marx is Back (a play on history)
@ ACU-Book Café The Barricade
Voorstraat 71 Utrecht
Sunday 29 January, 21:00

“Why have I returned? to clear my name!”
AstaroTheatro presents a monologue by Howard Zinn adapted and performed by Roberto Bacchilega
Karl Marx has had enough of seeing his revolutionary ideas taken over by opportunists who, time and again, organize a new priesthood and hierarchy complete with excommunications and indexes, 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.
Marx is Back is the opening of a themed evening with open discussion. ‘How far capitalism has gone, nowadays. Ideas for resistance and the meaning of revolution in our times.’
Before the event there will be food on donation by Taste Before You Waste – Utrecht at 19:00.
