9/11/11: WELCOME TO OUR REVOLUTION: Testimony From Tahrir. Performance at Pittsburgh’s Mattress Factory

Sunset (7:38pm), September 11, 2011

In Winifred Lutz’s “Garden” at the entrance to the Mattress Factory (www.mattress.org)
$10 (Free for MF Members, CMU, PITT, and PPU students w/I.D.)

WELCOME TO OUR REVOLUTION:  Testimony from Tahrir
In this performance, Lawrence Bogad explores the Garden outside the Mattress Factory, guiding the audience though the tale of his five week journey through the streets of revolutionary Cairo. He navigates a torture-state in its death-throes, sees babies riding tanks, hears a rumor of “Zionist sharks,” and deciphers ancient Pharoanic hieroglyphic totalitarian propaganda. The piece will begin at dusk, with an ironic/symbolic ritual to Prevent the Sunset.

      Israel was also founded with a srtnog class consciousness. Perhaps these demonstrations are that culture, and the basis of new political activism.Netanyahu is the start-up nation megaphone, as a hundred billionaires and ten thousand millionaires add up to social welfare. All they do is raise the prevailing housing prices.The same thing happens everywhere. If accepted into international movements, maybe that is what will happen.If in every progressive effort young Israelis attempt to participate in, they are chased away for being complicit with colonialism , they won’t feel very inspired.
