The Noam Chomsky Lectures

By Daniel Brooks & Guillermo Verdecchia

’Ordinarily, theatre relies on illusion in order to reveal truths; The Noam Chomsky Lectures relies on truths in order to reveal illusions. Following the impetus of Chomsky himself, Brooks and Verdecchia have recognized that mass media, mass spectacle, have trivialized and severed consciousness and conscience, separating both from a communal base. We collectively know little about what is done in our name by our elected governments and the business interests they serve. The Noam Chomsky Lectures assumes not only that we do want to know, that our ‘knowing together’ may change things, but also that it is less painful to know than to not know.’ - Joyce Nelson in her introduction to The Noam Chomsky Lectures
