a DADA revolution
Premiered 23rd September – 14th October 2017 in Warehouse 9 Copenhagen
ON TOUR IN DK/DE spring 2020 (see calendar)
100 years ago the DADAists ran rampage in the artistic world, and 100 years ago the October revolution took place in Russia, changing the world for ever. Inspired by two important revolutions - one artistic and one political - Livingstones Kabinet will launch a world revolution.
We will aim laughter and ridicule at those who wield power, such that they will be reduced to trembling, fearful wrecks. We will bang our drums to drown out the racket of their wars and bombings.We will dissolve language until it contains even less meaning than their formless prattle. We will dance with a physicality much more powerful than their contrived gesticulations.
Come and join us as we start this revolution NOW!
