Call Mr. Robeson - A life, with songs.
With Michael Conliffe, Piano
Directed by Olusola Oyeleye; Designed by Phil Newman
Paul Robeson is a great and famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner. When he gets too radical and outspoken for the establishment's liking, he is branded a traitor to his country, is harassed, and denied opportunities to perform or travel.
This rollercoaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable life highlights how his activism caused him to be disowned and disremembered, even by leaders and descendants of the civil rights movement. It features some famous songs and speeches, including a dramatic rendition of Ol’ Man River, and a spectacularly defiant testimony to the Senate House Un-American Activities Committee.

The Theatro Technis (TT) archive is a unique Diaspora heritage resource. The project aims to document and re-tool the community�s diverse history through its own voices from audio recordings, interviews, music, songs and poetry, photography, early video, film and drama over 5 decades. Linguistically the material is of particular interest featuring Greek-/Turkish Cypriot Dialect(minority languages under evolution), Standard Modern Greek, and Maronite/Latino/ Armenian Cypriot and Ancient Greek. The material contains themes that go beyond migrant experiential stories and focus on cultural and social commentaries, labour, religious, political struggles, identity and intergenerational issues. We aim to make the archive accessible (physically/electronically), interactive and sustainable.
