This play doesn't have anything to do with austerity. It probably has a lot to do with the emergence of the people as a political subject, but its special interest for the Cambridge People's Assembly (CPA) is that it's the work of one of our founding supporters, Olivier Tonneau. Olivier, a university teacher and researcher, represented the CPA at numerous meetings and events before turning to other projects in 2016.
Revolution Redux dramatizes the uses of the French Revolution against the French state by anticolonial activists. It's 'an invitation to rediscover the French Revolution through the writings of Robespierre, Jules Vallès, Aimé Césaire, Kateb Yacine, and Frantz Fanon'. After the play there will be a discussion with Olivier and the sociologist Arathi Sriprakash.
