REMATCH: Classicism VS. Romanticism!
To mark the exhibition ‘Romanticism and the Avant-Garde’ at the Liminal Gallery, long-dead aesthetic hatreds will be exhumed, to rage against each other for the first time since the 1830s, for your edification and amusement!
Two opposing teams–the refined paragons of a Classicist coterie, and the wild barbarians of a Romanticist Cénacle–shall wage battle through their poems, plays,
Come hiss and boo your enemies, cheer and bolster your chosen side! Come in your Classicist or Romanticist costume, and banter in your out-dated slang! (never fear, we shall tell you what that might mean.) Dance triumphantly round the busts of your enemies, or spear them with verbal witticisms! Drink nectar from fresh pomegranates, or wine from skulls!
HISTORY FIGHTS BACK!
Because if you can’t fight for a 200-year-old idea, what CAN you fight for?!
Gallery opens @ 5:30 with competing spreads of food & drink, competing music, and propaganda.
Readings, performances, and disputes from 6:30 to 9!
