Ana’s husband was taken by security forces and became one of the disappeared; she lives a life between reality and fantasy which he inhabits with her. Pedro was arrested in 1973 and taken to a concentration camp in the north of Chile; his journey to retrace his past and face his demons takes him back to the place, where he was incarcerated. Miguel came as a young boy with his parents; he reconnects with his roots as an adult and questions his identity as he struggles between his adopted country and the place of his birth. This is a powerful representation of a deeply moving story that takes you on a journey of struggle, hope, fear and determination, highlighting critical moments that changed a nation.

Written by Francisco Carrasco; this new theatre piece incorporates theatre, storytelling, live music, movement and multi-media as well as songs from the Chilean popular song movement of the time.

‘A Hidden History of the Cuban Revolution’. Book presentation

pb58163

 

The Cuban revolution is almost universally understood as the victory of a guerrilla army, in which workers and their organisations were passive onlookers.

In ‘A Hidden History of the Cuban Revolution: How the Working Class Shaped the Guerrillas Victory’ published in 2016, Stephen Cushion turns conventional wisdom on its head and argues that the Cuban working class played a much more decisive role in the Revolution’s outcome than previously understood.

Monday 5th June, 19.30 at The Red Deer, Pitt St, Sheffield

Compañera Pat Barron QEPD

They tell their life stories, from their initial inspiration as Allende and Popular Unity came to power in 1970, the extraordinary achievements they were part of, and their personal experiences in the run-up to, and on the day of the military coup (Sept 11th 1973) and its aftermath.

Four Chileans with widely different experiences tell of the euphoria of being part of huge social advances, the repression they suffered, the solidarity they received, and their arrival in Britain to make new lives as exiles and activists.
