“The Forbidden, the Young and the 25th of April 1974”
[Exclusive show for Schools]
Show aimed at young people, which, using a musical and simple language, aims to answer three major questions linked to the dictatorial period and the process that led to April 25, 1974: “What is a dictatorship? What is freedom? What is democracy?
In accessible language, it will highlight what was prohibited to young people, adults, families and organizations, before the 25th of April 1974 and the contribution of intervention music as a very powerful weapon to draw attention to social, political and economic problems , mainly in the 60s and 70s.
In this topic, with a short and incisive explanation, the value of the possibility of making choices and decisions of our own free will is highlighted, respecting the freedom of others, laws, norms, rules, principles and values.
The value of democracy as the best regime for living with justice, social peace and the importance of being able to choose, by direct vote, representatives to govern and the importance of equality, freedom and the rule of law will also be highlighted.
