About the show

Thomas Paine in Violence is an electronic psychedelic opera-sermon set in a radio station in the afterlife of the Founding Father and international activist. Joan La Barbara portrays Paine struggling to broadcast a message of economic justice amidst a whirlwind of lightning-quick singing, autotuned shock-jockery, gadgets, voices, instruments, and sonic chaos.
