“Truth Translator” – a folding ear trumpet

truth_translator_BM

The “Truth Translator” – a cardboard ear-trumpet – made for the daring theatrical activists at BP-or-not-BP, who persistently expose the immoral ties between BP (and other fossil fools) with London’s largest cultural / arts institutions.  This fold-away prop was used on Sunday as part of a short performance inside the British Museum to shame BP.  The ‘star performer’ of this show was a former oil worker from Colombia who had been kidnapped and tortured by paramilitaries linked to BP.  For more details see the article on their website here, including audio and a video (soon I think) of the event, and links to their many other creative protests.
