Make Better Please
Uninvited Guests, in collaboration with Lewis Gibson (UK)
Bring us the troubles of the world, this city’s crises and the hope in your hearts.
Uninvited Guests are in town. We call on the people to gather with us, to read the day’s newspapers together, to speak and to listen.
We will give voice to the concerns of the hour!
We will question the powers that be!
We will make things better! We will make things better!
This is a town hall meeting and a radio broadcast, a public protest and the news of your world. In these times of crisis we make a collective ministry with you, our society of friends.Possessed by the spirits of corporate fat cats, cabinet ministers and media tycoons, we invoke the demons of the day, in order to banish them forever. Frothing at the mouth, we dance it out, rock out and rage on your behalf.
Each show will draw on the day’s news and will be about whatever matters to you. We’ll speak the unspeakable and do the unthinkable for you. These performances sited in Moseley’s Friends Institute explicitly nod to the companies appropriation and research of Quaker activity.
