1789 and all that...
George, D. and Tampalini, S. (1989) 1789 and all that... [Play] [Creative Output]
Presented by the Alliance Francaise de Perth in association with Murdoch University and The University of Western Australia as part of the bicentenary celebrations of the French Revolution.
1789 attempted to deconstruct history by locating it within the context of new historicism, where tangental personal accounts and individual stories refracted the themes of its linear narrative. Images from the french revolution were juxtaposed with images from more current political and social insurrections, affectively connecting the play's ontology with that of the contemporary world.
