The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Tonight, Peacock Theatre, 8pm: Indignados!

Indignados! brings together two well-known Tasmanian artists, Pete Hay and Paul Gerard, who will take you on a surprising voyage to Spain. This show combines poetry and the thrilling sounds of Spanish guitar, and will immerse you in in the passion and excitement of Madrid during a period of civil unrest.

Pete’s poetry evokes not only the landscapes, politics and people of Spain, but a very Australian experience of moving through Europe with an eye tuned to injustice and absurdity.

Pete’s poetry is accompanied by a major new Spanish guitar composition by Paul, who spent eight years studying professional Spanish guitar with Fernando da Costa and has been a professional musician and composer for more than 30 years.

Indignados! taps into the wellspring of Spanish tradition and celebrates the colour and exhilaration of Madrid during a time when thousands gathered to express a desire to resist globalisation.

Indignados! is a sequel to the very popular Evening in Andalusia, but a stand-alone show, based on a different sequence of poems from Pete’s collection, Girl Reading Lorca. Join us for this exceptional night of music and poetry!
