About

made and performed by Juan Carlos Otero, Keir Cooper & Lola Rueda
in collaboration with Emma Frankland.

A new performance exploring Spain’s communist & anarchist coalition government of the 1930s, and the society that elected it. From the makers of Don Quijote (4 stars in The Guardian & Time Out Critics’ Choice).

Inspired by historical events that preceded the Spanish Civil War, REPUBLICA is the untold story of the Spanish Revolution and a bold reclaiming of the ideals of The Second Republic (1931-1939).

With today’s rising opposition between anti-austerity and far right movements all over Europe, REPUBLICA is a timely examination of the last time a government took land and power from the super-rich to give back to its people. Told by a flamenco dancer, a punk guitarist and a stripper, it demands we break the Pact of Forgetting.
