9,6 (a defence)
A climate scientist goes berserk.
An activist glues herself to a work of art.
The prime minister opts for what’s feasible and affordable.
And then there is the little girl with pigtails. She too.
In a time when oil companies spend more money on lawyers to silence citizens than on environmental fines. In a time when farmers who defend their land against multinationals are sued themselves. In a time when citizens who take action are condemned, while the real culprits can buy off prosecution. In such a time, a woman speaks to us. She takes the floor. She makes her voice heard.
A rhythmic and musical solo performance, a tribute to the power of the voice, between slam poetry and spoken word.
