Produced & Presented By The Cockpit
FESTIVAL OF BREXIT
Inside A Mass Hallucination
Various dates between now and 29th March 2019
Open call for submissions.
So now we have a deal. Of course it isnt really a deal; its a set of unhappy holding arrangements while a hugely expensive commision works out what to do next. It's a joint press release at the beginning of an endless stream of other, lower profile, press releases. Its the moment Brexit becomes like the Loch Ness monster; an industry as well as a figment of fevered imagination.
But we're being told it's a deal.
Brexit implied a finality of which it was not capable. Beyond the illusion of a once and for all vote on Europe lay a continuing national crisis of division and confusion, of interminable international negotiations and renegotiations that will last decades.
Nightmare? Or chance for a new vision?
Fittingly, Festival Of Brexit will be a random series of events held here between now and March next year rather than an actual festival.
Watch this space, join the Facebook event, and join us at the Festival of Brexit - before we wake up and it's all over.
The Cockpit invites submissions for live performance, anything from 3 minutes to an hour duration, using any form for our Festival of Brexit, in response to the theme 'inside a mass hallucination".
