Performance theatre tackles the spectacle of politics head-on.
In 2010, Estonia was rocked by a series of party funding scandals that threatened the stability of this young republic. To expose the hypocrisy and manipulation at the heart of politics, a theatre group took on their boldest, most ambitious project to date: the creation of a new political party. Was this a hoax or were they for real?
Ash & Money documents performance art at its most powerful: a pertinent, thought-provoking and truly participative exploration of social issues that exposes the weaknesses of democracy while pointing to the power of civil society.
