Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir
Reverend Billy might save the world yet. At the very least, he realized a long time ago that the world needs saving from consumerism and to that end he founded the Church of Stop Shopping in New York. Together with the members of the Stop Shopping Choir he preaches and sings against the alienation of our capitalist societies, joining local activist groups, preaching on the streets, as well as inviting the audience to gospel shows on stages and museums around the world. Bill Talen is not only a renowned performer and activist – he has protested against neoliberalism, consumerism, Trump’s pipeline plans and climate change – but was also the Green Party’s candidate for Mayor of New York. The Church of Stop Shopping will come on a pilgrimage from New York to Athens to listen to and connect with the current social and political situation in Greece. The choir will perform together with local artists both in public spaces and on stage, seeking an analogy between Athens and New York – both pre- and post-crisis.
