Royal Festival Hall,
Apples and Snakes presents Architects Of Our Republic
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s I have a dream speech with a massive, FREE open-air event outside the Royal Festival Hall this summer. An open-air collision of words, music and film celebrating an iconic moment in modern history. Gutsy choirs mix it with 21st-century beats, a new generation of film-makers dream 3D dreams and spoken word artists Hollie McNish, Salena Godden and Charlie Dark interrogate the power of speech. With a rare UK appearance by the legendary Last Poets.
With commission poetry films from AJ McKenna, Conrad Kira, Vanessa Kisuule, Rik Sykes and Deborah Stevenson and music commissions from Zena Edwards & Drew Horley and Dizraeli. Make a date with history and join us.
