Faire courir les riches et câliner les pauvres. Il y a pire profession de foi quand on pratique un spoken word tiré des trouvailles de Ted Joans ou de Amiri Baraka. The Rich Are Only Defeated When Running for Their Lives, déclare Anthony Joseph. Toujours prompt à faire revivre les mémoires anciennes, le Haut Parleur voit ses mots subtilement énoncés, trouver un soutien sans faille dans les cuivres, claviers et percussions. De la Caraïbe originelle à Londres qui l’abrite, Joseph trace des ponts. Deux cultures pour un même geste de création qui vient sonner en écho neuf et rageur au People United Will Never Be Defeated, scandé dans les rues au Chili en 1970, et partout depuis. Mais chez Anthony Joseph, la lutte sait aussi joyeusement (faire) danser.

ENGLISH VERSION : Have the rich run for their lives, and give the poor some TLC. A worthy motto, especially for a spoken word artist who draws influence from Ted Joans or Amiri Baraka. The Rich Are Only Defeated When Running for Their Lives, declares Anthony Joseph. Always keen to revive ancient memory, the Loud Speaker delivers his message clearly, supported as he is by a brass section, keyboards and percussions. Joseph draws bridges from his native Caribbean to London, where he currently resides. Two cultures merge into a unique creation, a fierce new echo of the motto People United Will Never Be Defeated which was first shouted during demonstrations in Chile in 1970, and has since spread all over the world. Anthony Joseph will make you dance merrily – which is also part of the struggle.
