While Adelaide winds up its Mad March with WOMAD (a celebration of the blending of cultures), the Adelaide Fringe is playing host to a show that carries the message of a culture fearful of its future survival. That show is Bin Laden: The One Man Show. It’s been produced by Knaive Theatre‘s Tyrrell Jones and Sam Redway.
In this play, we are treated to a very sympathetic audience with Osama Bin Laden. Where did that idea come from?
Is it dangerous to let ideas of destruction be given theatrical, motivational treatment?
What points have been raised in your debates?
How easy is it to get an AK47 into Australia?
I just watched James Bond with my girls. It’s like cowboys and indians and all other good guy/bad guy shows in which we turn cultures into cardboard cutouts for entertainment. Are these shows important for binding a society together, or dangerous for creating polarised views of the world?
Here is a collection of vox pops from people enjoying WOMADelaide 2019, gathered by our co-producer, Nardia Symonds.
In the musical pilgrimage, we have a track called Driving by Belinda Gehlert.
Here’s this week’s preview video:
