}}}The Emma Goldman Project{{{

"If the children need milk, let us go into the stores and take it. If
families need bread, let us find out where the flour is stored and take

It is with these words that the great anarchist Emma Goldman is brought to
life on stage. Once known as 'the most dangerous woman in America', Emma
Goldman was despised by the government, hunted by the police, and a threat
to the bosses. Yet she never relented, and her powerful legacy lives on
today through her contributions to women's rights, labour struggles, and
the anarchist movement for freedom.

Reknowned popular historian and professor Howard Zinn has taken the
lengendary life of Emma Goldman and woven it into a beautiful play which
touches on the themes of class war, immigration, free love, propaganda by
the deed, and solidarity.

WeNous took this play and integrated scenes that were conceptualized,
developed and written by the group itself. These scenes include modern
elements of Montreal's Anarchist movement, invoking debate, criticsm, and
love. This is not a play to be missed!


WeNous is a Montreal collective of creative thinkers, amateur actors,
anarchists, and people who want to infuse a bit more beauty into what we
know as revolution. We haved produced this play in a horizontal, organic
fashion, with no bosses, managers, or directors - just the way we think
anarchy should, and does work! We all play Emma throughout the
play, because there is a little bit of Emma in all of us. This is not a
play about an icon, but a moment to reflect on our implications and ways
to do things, for social change as well as in all of our lives.

}}}Infringement Festival{{{

Celebrating freedom of expression and designed as a real arts democracy,
this festival is a critical response to the oppressive neoliberal
worldview and all its billboard trucks, televisions, flyers,
advertisements, jingles, made-for-TV Wars; and the depoliticisation of
people through this diversionary Spectacle.

The infringement welcomes a variety of performances and cultural
resistance: theatre groups, performers, street activism, political
theatre, musicians, radical performance, visual artists, films,
marginalized arts, spoken-word, puppet shows, disadvantaged groups, and
anyone wishing to artistically infringe on the monoculture that creeps
into every corner of our lives.
