Performance activists Reverend Billy & the Stop Shopping Choir will be at The Clemente’s Flamboyan Theater on Thursday, Dec. 16th with their latest “Earth Riot” show. The team brings a new suite of songs with lyrics by Reverend Billy and Savitri D composed and arranged by Sunder Ganglani and Ali Dineen with music direction by Gregory Corbino. The show is directed by Savitril.
The character Reverend Billy was developed in the ’90’s by actor and playwright, William Talen. His “sermons” lament the evils of consumerism and the racism of sweatshop labor — and nowadays, the end of the world brought about by global warming.
The Stop Shopping Choir describes themselves as “a radical performance community based in New York City… from many different creative and activist backgrounds [having] evolved a very particular sound and performance experience from the synthesis of our lived experience.”
