The Yes Men @ The Royal – Thursday April 14
Who are the The Yes Men?
Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno are two guys who couldn’t hold down a job until they became representatives of Exxon, Halliburton, Dow Chemical, and the U.S. federal government. As the Yes Men, they use humor, truth and lunacy to bring media attention to the crimes of their unwilling employers.
Their film, The Yes Men Fix the World, won the audience award at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, the Grierson Award for Most Entertaining Documentary, and went on to become a smash box-office sensation, only just barely surpassed by Avatar.
They also hope what they are doing is in some way a modern version of The Invisible Theatre. (See Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed.)
How much are tickets?
By donation at the door to Project Democracy at The Royal.
