Inhaltsangabe: SCIENCE, LOVE AND REVOLUTION is the text of the poems from David Lee Morgan?s hit spoken word show at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. THE SCOTSMAN: This is one of those rare, passionate performances that slaps you around the face until you start seriously questioning why things are the way they are. Morgan grew up in smalltown USA but he now calls London home, and he has a fascinating perspective on the wave of disparate revolutions currently shaking the globe. Rather than seeing Occupy and the Arab Spring in isolation, he sees them as part of a continuum ? a long history of revolution and counter revolution stretching back over centuries. He was, ?active during the great revolutions of the 60s, 70s and 80s? on the streets listening to [Black] Panthers rap,? and he wonders why the last 100 years of revolution is ?not really examined here in the West?. This show isn?t intended as an incitement to rebel (although you may leave wanting to rush to the barricades), but it is an invitation to learn from the revolutions of the past ? or, as Morgan puts it in his fiery final poem, What Is To Be Done: ?Let the revolution be your school / Study the connections and you begin to see / The chains of slavery are chains of power, too.? SCIENCE LOVE AND REVOLUTION is unashamedly heart-on-sleeve and intellectual ? how many other shows have you seen this August where the performer calls a quick time out so he can explain dialectics? If you want a bracing crash course in how to ?read history? with a f***ing blowtorch,? look no further. TIME OUT: David Lee Morgan takes us to school, via Human Evolution, past Santa Claus and into measured resistance. We are reminded that the Arab Spring, The Occupy Wall Street Movement and popular opposition in Turkey, Syria, Egypt (again!) are led by the people and have the potential to rewind human kind and lead us to a more equitable future. And no! this is no one-note polemic, but an exhilarating tour de force, energizing the young, for whom these battles are so important, and reminding the old that Old School isn?t dead.. I am awed by David?s passion, his humorous and yet enraged intellectual appraisal of What Is Wrong & How It Can be Changed? This is an energetic, clever and passionate show of human life, where we went off the rails and how to find our way back. Highly recommended! LITRO: Think of every hot-button topic and word you can and then imagine all of them within one show. He spoke about poverty, rebellion, oppression, gender, democracy, communism, and money. He spits out the words of sacrifice, suffering and revolution, of wisdom and enlightenment. What he says is radical, is political, but it?s also wise. And as he performs, he applies the much-needed wisdom he claims this world lacks.
