Elixir of Life
Sweet and sour songs for hungry times
Dave Rogers and Dave Dale have both been key members of Banner Theatre. Dave Rogers has worked for the company since it was founded in 1973 and Dave Dale worked with the company from 1984 to 1997. Together they have provided songs and theatre in support of many struggles, ranging from parents fighting school closures, and black people opposing deportations, through to workers defending their jobs, and communities fighting for their survival. Along the way they have sniped at just about every tyrant from General Pinochet to George Bush. Elixir of Life is a compilation of some of their work together, and is a continuation of Banner Theatre''s documentary tradition.
The songs on this CD are all available in print in Banner’s 2005 publication, Singing the Changes. If you would like to order a copy of the book or more copies of the CD, book a Banner show or just find out more about the company, contact:
