LET`S TALK, jueves a las 16.30h. o viernes a las 19.30 h.

Walking the tightrope, the tension between art and politics. Al Weiwei, the chinese artist, is celebrated in the West while being censored and imprisoned in China. Two puppeteers are arrested in Madrid on terrorist charges for presenting a questionable work in an inappropriate place. A radio presenter says he would take a shotgun to members of a particular political party. Should freedom of expression have a limit? Should artists censor themselves to avoid conflict with political interests? Are tax laws that discourage creativity beyond retirement acceptable?
There is a short audio discussion about the above play here - http://offstage.org.uk/
Just to make the point clear;  http://www.theguardian.com/world/commentisfree/video/2016/feb/10/sorry-we-cant-ban-everything-that-offends-you-video
