    On the Edge: How Art and Activism is challenging European austerity

    (UK / Greece)

    Paul Mason and guests

    Devised by the contemporary Greek collective blitz theatre group, LATE NIGHT is a modern day tragedy in the form of a post-war, David Lynch inspired tea-dance. Is this a farewell waltz to a crumbling Europe?

     

    In this pre-show event, writer and broadcaster Maria Margaronis leads a panel discussion alongside journalist and broadcaster Paul Mason, artist and activist John Jordan and the artists of blitz theatre group to explore the political and economic crisis engulfing Greece, its implications for Europe and the impact on Greek artistic and activist communities. 

     

    Chaired by Maria Margaronis – Writer & Broadcaster

    Worse, and more insidious, the months of callous inaction have pushed the mood in Greek society into a dangerous place.
