'A picker pucker panoramic poetry parade' (John Hegley). Combining words from Heathcote Williams with poems from Mesopotamia to Tahrir Square and an original score composed and performed by Mike Dr Blue, this is a rabble-rousing call to arms that celebrates the revolutionary power of words. Brainfruits epic production charts the great resistance movements from the Peasants Revolt to Occupy Wall Street. Over 80 poets are referenced in a mind-bending maelstrom " a compendium of the courageous, creative voices that called for change; from Shelley and Firdousi to Ginsberg and Angelou, to Pussy Riot and Mirman Baheer.
