Democratically Speaking, Director

A co-production of SRT, Ethics in Society, Stanford Peace + Justice Studies Initiative, and TAPS, Democratically Speaking explores the idea and realities of “democracy,” from ancient Greece to the Occupy Movement. This performance features a dynamic interplay of voices, including Aeschylus, Thucydides, Euripides, Demosthenes, Plato, Aristotle, Thomas Paine, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Immanuel Kant, Mary Wollstonecraft, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, Sylvia Pankhurst, Rosa Luxemburg, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Arundhati Roy, Gloria Steinem, and a host of others. A timely exploration of “people power” (the root meaning of demos + kratos), Democratically Speaking offers a compelling challenge to all of us in this important US election year.
