2012 starts out with a powerful energy taking over Melbourne. EL TARRO, the smallest performing space in the world and YOGARTE proudly and loudly declare: SUMMER REVOLUCION!

Art, rhythm, food, music, performance, inventions, games and actions: creative revolt!

Mankind is not an institution, corporation or installation. The human life is an inevitable, marvellous, chaotic and sublime experience in which interaction, infiltration, emancipation and perpetuation play leading roles.

The SUMMER REVOLUCION is a tribute to the revolutionary spirit. To those who think differently and lead us to see the world in other ways.

Headlined by a monster 9 piece band LABJACD mixing old school hip-hop, authentic Latin rhythms and funk with Madre Monte, amalgam of Afro-Colombian rhythms, Cumbia and deep, funky-arse plus Abbie Cardwell and The Chicano Rockers, Mexican rocanrol inspired by vintage Mexican music of the 50's and 60's.

Arrive early to Summer Revolutionary Town infiltrated by more than 100 artists, and an underground market, Señor BBQ and Los Amates. Join a protest with Girly Militaria Red Brigade and No Lights No Lycra, dance reigns supreme, scream for your thing.

Then make your betting on Lucha Libre, manoeuvres in masks at the Santo Town Hall with Nahuatl Sound System plus El Changoleon and El Acordeon. Visit the multi sensory church for some revolutionary meditation.

The real, the surreal, the imaginary and the fantastic are the stars of the night and through freedom of expression the Cultural Revolution will come to live. We are, we communicate, we express, we create, and we are all artists. Now, break through and open the doors to this revolution!

EL TARRO, the smallest performing space in the world continuously innovates in the way audiences experience art, always combining multiple art forms and aiming to inspire diverse emotions in each person that shares the space.
