A manual and hardly an answer to the the question “How To Start A Revolution”. The publication is a script for the identically named musical in four parts and ongoing artistic project by Anna McCarthy. The musical deals with the romanticization and synaesthetic manipulation tactics entailed in depictions of revolution, rebellion and recent history acted out by an ever-same group of bored rebels. Facts are mixed with fiction, layers are built upon layers to create scenarios that manipulate a viewer’s perception of what was and is truly real.
The “How To Start A Revolution” project has thus far manifested itself in the form of arrests, archives, films, photographs, and songs. But now it is time for the ultimate grand romantic gesture: A MUSICAL – singing, dancing, screaming, and laughing at the question ‘what time is it’? It’s a prophecy; it’s a poetic pop spectacle.
