MARX IS BACK (a play on history)
“Why have I returned? to clear my name!”
AstaroTheatro presents a monologue by Howard Zinn adapted and performed by Roberto Bacchilega.
Karl Marx 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 doors of the event are opened from 19:30 and will close at 20:00 so be on time!
Afterwards there is room for some drinks and discussion about the play.
Time and location:
The Communist Youth Movement of the Netherlands (CJB)
Why did Van Gogh paint the “Sunflowers”?
“I am hearing the earth…there is always an interaction between the earth and heaven. It is as if heaven is reaching down..”
“The Volcanos” a Philosophical Performance about life potential, displacement, deconstruction, urgency…

Madhav Agarwal is a musician and producer from close to Delhi, India currently based in Den Haag, Netherlands. Trained in Hindustani (North Indian) Classical, Sufi, Jazz and Western Contemporary Experimental music, the music he makes is an amalgamation of the music cultures of the East and the West, the avant garde and the traditional.
Keeping soul and raw energy as the common denominators, Madhav uses traditional Indian instruments (harmonium, voice, tanpura, tabla, bansuri, sitar) to create visceral sounds that belong to no time or era yet are accessible to anyone who is seeking new experience and sensation.
