Swing on over to the lovely Torriano Meeting house for our three day Talking Stick extravaganza.
A talking stick is a tool for speech we remember using at primary school. It wasn’t always a stick – often it was a bean bag or something with a face, but if you had it you could talk and if you didn’t you couldn’t. Everyone had a turn unless you were a mouthy little shit at school.
The talking stick is an instrument of democracy used by aboriginal and indigenous cultures. The stick is passed through the group to ensure that even the shyest are heard, and prevent loud voices from dominating conversation.

Paralleling the dramatic student protests and riots that were exploding across the world in the 1960s at the time the film was made, Fényes szelek, (The Confrontation) is a story of protest and rebellion in 1947 Hungary when the Communist Party have just taken power.
Jancso’s first colour film is another virtuoso display by a director at the peak of his powers, and eloquently explores the complex issues and inherent problems of revolutionary democracy.
Guest poet John Hegley.
