We Need to Speak toTony

GEORGE BARBER 2016
In ‘We Need To Speak Tony’, five improvisers are asked to ‘channel’ the psyche of Tony Blair.  The artist, George Barber, weaves a focus and feeds the improvisers anecdotes from various sources about Tony Blair’s life and experience as Prime Minister.  Thus the five approaches strangely share a unified coherent vision.
