T0623835983"Somebody must have made a false accusation against Joseph K, for he was arrested one morning, having done nothing wrong"
. The chillingly prophetic scenario created in Kafka's The Trial
is the starting point for this darkly comic and fiercely satirical musical. What happens when we sacrifice freedom and democracy in the name of security> What becomes of justice when the right to trial is abandoned for the politics of popularity? This urgent and compelling work delves into the murky world of international counter-terrorism and adds a powerful voice the debate over freedom and human rights. Failed States
playfully examines important political themes through humour, song and one man's quest to clear his name.
