Dreams Come True, Hichmoul Pilon, anthropie, collettivo Siamo ovunque
2 December 2022 h. 20.00
A participatory performance in which the audience reads aloud the testimonies from anti-fascists, feminists, anti-capitalists, anti-racists, anti-specialists, hackers, and people fighting for the rights of migrants, against all forms of social oppression, for the rights of LGBTQIA+ people, against ecocides, for the rights of sex workers, against police violence, for the rights of undocumented immigrants, for self-determination and empowerment of all workers, against job insecurity, against the current prison system and for Zone to Defend.
The project was conceived during a tour in Hong Kong in 2019, where where one of the promoters of the project mets some protesters of the pro-democracy movement: within 20 years Hong Kong will be entirely Chinese and their freedom of expression is rapidly diminishing. From their stories came the desire to share aspects of political engagement: the act of courage, which gives the strength to fight your way out of an oppressive or precarious situation, and the tools, tactics and practical advice useful to all activists, here or elsewhere.
Siamo Ovunque is a collection of emotional and inspirational resources: activists’ stories, tactics, tools and strategies, recorded as written texts or transcribed from oral histories to form an archive of contemporary activism.
