Shakira – British Library 1860!

Shakira – British Library 1860!

The scene as we find it The British Library, 1860's, musty with books, tree of life, Hermetic a, a poignant spider, bespectacled, reading a book on the future of web-building. Karl Marx with Dylan hair, making notes on Exchange Values . Napoleon, demoted to Head Librarian, building a cannon with yellow-back books. Silence, no noted drama, still life Van Gogh impressionism. Hegel, upside down on the table, pulls a cord Shakira, magnificent on stage, belly dancing live at the British Library 1860, changing history – “ Whenever, Wherever”. Napoleon's like " Not tonight Josephine Shakira's here " and Marx screams " I said the Revolution was not to be televised " but synthesizers drown him out, the lights dim and the belly dancing begins time is suspended.....
