What would you do if you had open access, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to classified material that could prove the abuse, corruption and illegality of both the government and large companies? The protagonists in this show are the three great digital whistle-blowers of today: Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden. Their actions have led them into exile and imprisonment. On stage, we will see the three deprived, in one way or another, of their freedom.
Perhaps we associate these facts to the modern internet era, however they actually tell a very old story. These three characters remind us of the tale about the madman who shouts the truth in the middle of a public square and who is then accused of false prophecy, treachery or heresy and ends up imprisoned, murdered or exiled?
La revelació deals with the different types of modern censorship, the crisis of the media and journalism, freedom of expression, the forms of control used by governments and the new digital forms of resistance. All the dialogues, situations and documents of the play are real although, sometimes it may seem like they come from a dramatic fiction or an espionage story.
Jorge-Yamam Serrano leads this stage proposal. Since 2003 he has taken small format theatre to homes and real spaces with the TeatrodeCERCA project. He has directed, written and starred in the work Que vaya bonito, winner of the 2012 FiraTàrrega Award, finalist of the Max Award for the Best Revelation Show 2014 ... Surely you remember Camargate, a piece of documentary theatre that he wrote based on the recording of a meal that, a few years ago, shook Catalan politics. In this show, Jorge-Yamam Serrano works alongside Neus Molina, journalist and editor of Godot magazine, specializing in culture and performing arts, and who here contributes to the show with her advice on journalism, documentation and information processing.
