Dead White Anarchists

17th October @ BASE, 7:30-10pm

DEAD WHITE ANARCHISTS (+spoken word open mic)

Paris, 1892. If you’re not rich, things look bleak. Political bombings
and police crackdowns tear the city apart. Out of this carnage steps
Emile Henry, a young anarchist preparing his war against the State. But when he hears strange mumblings from the future, madness beckons… Dead White Anarchists_ is a solo theatre show – a Molotov cocktail of radical history lesson, spoken word and sci-fi crime thriller. It’s a reflection on a bloody past and a chaotic present, but always holding hope for the future. Written and performed by Paul Case Directed by Emily Ingram

“A throwback to when political theatre meant the exploration of grand universal ideas… the piece doesn’t flinch. Four stars” – The Wee Review

PLUS spoken word open mic! Handful of slots available, five minutes each, sign up on the night.

We Are Now

Sunday 5th June
Dinner at 6pm, film at 7pm followed by a talk and Q&A with one of the film makers.

We Are Now (documentary)
22 minutes with English subtitles CrimethInc. Ex-Workers’ Collective
At the high point of the George Floyd Rebellion, cop-free zones sprung up from coast to coast.

As they were unfolding, Atlanta police killed Rayshard Brooks, a black father of four.

Angry demonstrators torched the Wendy’s where Brooks was shot, occupied it, and defended it from police and Klansmen for 24 days.

‘We Are Now’ is a small window into the delicate moments of freedom—joyous and tragic—that filled the autonomous zones of summer 2020.
