Guerilla Gays Triumph in new Ireland.


guerrilla-gays

 Oisin McKenna takes a look at queer activism today and republican activism in the past in his new show Gays Against the Free State. James Beggan sat down with him to find out what’s what.

 shared from rabble.ie with thanks          Okay so, you’ve done a show at Fringe before – GRINDR – a love story, and you’ve done Write/Performer/Salesman, both back in 2013. Is this your first show since then?Image result for Gay ireland

Yeah this is my first show since then, so it’s been three years, the show that I’m making now took way longer to make than those ones before. I felt like with the other two shows I did, they were about my own life whereas this isn’t at all. The subject matter is quite dense and I needed to know a lot more about it so it took way longer to make. It’s really different as well so it was harder to make, yeah it took a while.”Image result for Gay ireland

Did you have many people helping out with this one compared to the last one. Are there more moving parts?

Yeah definitely, way more. In terms of the cast, there are five people in this whereas with my first show was just me and the second one had two people. Then there’s the bigger production team as well, production manager and stage manager, more design people. Before it would’ve been quite small with maybe six people on the whole thing.

This in general is bigger, my other work felt quite intimate, introverted kind of, but this is really maximalist. There are parts that are self-consciously tacky, any time i had an instinct to go bigger or make a point in a more confrontational or inflammatory way, I did that.” Continue reading Guerilla Gays Triumph in new Ireland.

Ciutat Morta- Dead City- watch here + Review (English subs)

*****

Death CityThis  is the award winning ‘DeadCity’ (Ciutat Morta) with English subtitles, finally seen on TV in Catalonia by over half a million this week (with 5 minutes censored).

Ciutat Morta (Dead City)

It tells the story of a police vendetta, torture,  and frame-up of  5 obviously and totally innocent people in vengeance for an ‘accident’ when a plant pot fell or was thrown on a policeman’s head, leaving him paraplegic, during a mass raid on a squatters party in Barcelona.  How police, politicians, press and Courts at every level combined to blame bystanders who looked like anarcho punks and hound to her death a lesbian poet who wasn’t even there.

Patricia Heras, poeta Patricia Heras   poeta

The documentary is an eye-opener on how rampant fascism, racism and sexism still rule in never reformed police and judicial systems, but more than that it’s a moving immersion into suffering and struggle, using the poems of Patricia Heras, written before she was finally driven to suicide.

After the docu was shown to a record audience on the 2nd channel people spontaneously took to the streets for a 1.00am demo through the city. Continue reading Ciutat Morta- Dead City- watch here + Review (English subs)
