Photos: A Performance on Continuing the Revolution

[emphasisbold]The following are photographs from a highly controversial (and for us, exciting) performance currently touring Nepal, Our Dreams and Them. The performance aims to prepare people for the tasks ahead in continuing the Nepalese revolution, and speaks on debates within the Maoist party on continuing that revolution. It has been called "a call to the people and a warning to our leaders." These photos give a taste of this performance that inspired us so deeply. Photos by Eric Ribellarsi and Thomas van Beersum.

A previous report by Liam Wright has explored this performance. It is also available in Greek.[/emphasisbold]
