Banging Cymbal, Clanging Gong

Jo Randerson's solo show Banging Cymbal, Clanging Gong returns to BATS Theatre this week.

“It's obviously allegorical and I guess its contradictions are part of the point. With a world at escalating war because each faction thinks they are right and their cause is just and holy, and those who think/feel/act otherwise are evil, it may stimulate important thought for some. Others, like me, may find the central revelation, that even punks have hearts, banal. I also reject the assertion that those who take the more conventional road are therefore morally and spiritually dead. But the fact I'm engaged enough to argue such points (without imposing my views through fear of violence) probably means Randerson is achieving her aim.”
- John Smthye, National Business Review
