by Jason Nemor Harden and Cliff A. Moustache

Premiere – Tuesday 9th October 2018
also playing 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 15th and 16th October

Gil Scott-Heron is well known for his mesmerising mix of poetry and politics, he became known as ‘the godfather of rap’ and some called him ‘the black Bob Dylan’ (though he protested that he was a better singer!). He was also a novelist and activist, with a huge influence on rap, soul, slam-poetry and modern music generally.
This play takes its title from a classic example of a Gil Scott-Heron track – it is poetic, political as well as being very emotionally touching for us the listeners.

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised! er kanskje det mest kjente låt til legenden Gil Scott Heron. Men gjennom over 26 album, 6 bøker og utallige turnéer rundet hele verden ble han “den første MC” “gudfaren av rap” og “the black Bob Dylan”. Han innflytelse høres fortsatt i dag i hip hop, neo-soul og slampoesi og overalt hvor kunst, politikk og aktivisme møtes. “Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something” sa Heron.

Stykket er skrevet av Cliff A. Moustache og Jason Nemor Harden som var klar til å jobbe sammen med Heron i 2010, men han ble dessverre syk og døde. Forestillingen er da en musikalsk hyllest til Gil Scott Heron og gir publikum muligheten til å bli bedre kjent med artisten og musikken hans.
