SUMMARY

In her solo show Opposition, award-winning writer, performer and vocal gymnast Hannah Silva uses multiple art forms to dissect and parody political language, revealing the meaning, music and claptrap beneath the rhetoric of today's (big?) society.

The audience collects their name badges and become delegates at a political conference remixed as David Cameron's Big Society speech, the Weather, the News, slang, live Twitter feeds, Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill all get cut up and recomposed using physical theatre, a loop pedal, and Silva's extraordinary vocal acrobatics.

"Radical, political, courageous. An astonishing neo-Dadaist performance for our times." What's on Stage
