MICRONATIONS REVOLUTION, A show directed by Nelly Ben Hayoun for Shunt and Co-produced with Shunt


It will be a beautiful day when we will be celebrating the party of the human kind” Robespierre May 1794


If you could be a man or a superman what would you choose or as Hamlet immortally asks, to be or not to be?


The world is constantly changing, ideas are always evolving and people are struggling to belong. For two nights only, the spirit of the revolutionary party will be harnessed in London Bridge’s hottest arts venue. Forget North, South, East and West, Conservative, Labour or Liberal Democrat, on the 11th and 12th of March 2011, Shunt in association with Nelly Ben Hayoun, is opening it’s wrought iron doors and introducing four new worlds, four party systems, four micro-nations. Each new nation represents a site of adventure and play, for the audience to move through, explore and own. Yet, they are also potent instruments of propaganda, laboratories of new forms and vocabularies orchestrated by an unseen puppet master.


Enter the threshold and push your physical limits in sea-salt park, learning to scuba dive with Shadwell Diving Instructors.  Enjoy the world of play in the marble kingdom and bid your love away.  Apply your economic and creative talents to the realm of work, crafting mini models to be sold in auction or be bold in Ice Break mountain, participating in Shunt’s unique seed dating event, just be ware of the Yeti !


If that’s not enough to satiate one’s appetite for experience, then can-can the night away or jump on a wood horse, armed with a flag and your micro nations rallying cry, battling it out against your recently wed spouse!


Time as we know it will cease and a new time will begin, measured on success and participation in these new lands. We celebrate winners. We celebrate losers.
