Richard Tognetti writes:
“What is it we feel when part of a crowd? Is it fear or empowerment? Do we lose ourselves, or find our real selves? Is a crowd a mob, an ignorant mass of unthinking beings? Or is it an intelligent body, capable of thought processes and invention of which individuals alone would not be capable? We spend much of our life in crowds: when we go to the football or attend a concert, when we cross the street at peak hour, when we worship, mourn, protest or feast, we often do so as part of a crowd. The Crowd examines the nature of the crowd, in its many manifestations, both human and in the natural world.”
With more than a hundred people on stage, two thousand in the audience and countless thousands from all walks of life projected onto the big screen, it's time for you to join the crowd. “
