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.
