Truth To Power Café: Open Call
This is an open call for South London based female, non-binary and gender fluid speakers to share their experiences and talk truth to power at the next Truth To Power Café at Stanley Arts.
Jeremy Goldstein’s Truth to Power Café is a profound theatrical reflection on loss, hope and resistance – this internationally acclaimed performance event is told through memoir, poetry, image, music, film and personal stories from the people of South London in response to the question ‘who has power over you and what do you want to say to them?’
Speaking truth to power is a non-violent means of conflict resolution, the origins of which lie in the anti-war movement. In our era of post-truth and fake news, speaking truth to power is widely accepted to mean saying something to those in a position of trust or authority who don’t want to hear it.
Is it to your parents, a sibling, politician, lover, landlord, neighbour, religious leader, boss, banker, or simply your best friend? It’s time to tell them the truth before it’s too late.
People of all ages, experiences and backgrounds are invited to take part. To sign up, send us no more than 100 words in response to the question and we will be in touch. Click here to apply.
Truth to Power Café is inspired by the political and philosophical beliefs of Harold Pinter and his Hackney Gang.
Created, written and performed by Jeremy Goldstein with Henry Woolf
