Catalunya is currently in a state of political crisis, it's people entangled in a struggle between authoritarian containment by the Spanish government & sovereign liberation to independence. Through lack of sufficient education on the broader ramifications of the advent of an independant Catalunya, I offer no opinion on the issue.
I do, however, support the right of all people to determine their own future circumstances by democratic vote.
Among the thousands of events occurring throughout Catalunya in response to the current urgent political situation, I recently photographed a street butoh performance in Barcelona made by Oracles Theatre in support of the democratic right to vote.
Throughout the, approximately, hour-long duration of the performance many people stopped to photograph & film the players, some even participating.
Here is an example of how art, brought to the streets, can stimulate emotionally, provoke critical thought & bring people together, with both seriousness & humour.
