Julia Ramírez Blanco

Resumen


On May 14, 1995, two automobiles collide in the city of London. Their drivers, overcome by histrionic rage, get out of their vehicles and start to destroy them. In reality, it is all theatre. The cars, which are second-hand, have been bought especially for the occasion by members of Reclaim the Streets. Stuck in the middle of the road, their debris blocks motorized traffic, leaving the crowded Camden High Street free of cars.

The “repetitive rhythms” of rave can be heard and some three hundred people throw themselves into dancing in the first party.
