The Arches presents

Marcus Montgomery Roche: Vote For Me

part of EARLY DAYS: The Arches' Referendum Festival

Tue 16 Sep 2014 | 6 - 7pm | Free | 16+

My vote matters. My vote will change the world.

Marxus is considering the upcoming referendum. He is considering how he will express his right to a vote. He is realising that he has no idea what to do. Is he really in control of his own destiny? Or does his fate depend on a democracy he doesn’t feel part of?

Buying votes is illegal, but is selling them…?

In Vote for Me, the audience will vote on Marxus’s behalf- regardless of his own political outlook, as he auctions off his vote to the highest bidder.

Marcus Montgomery Roche is a director, performer and writer, currently studying clowning at Ecole Phillippe Gaulier in Paris. He studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) and, as part of Arches LIVE, wrote and directed RISK, an interactive show in which the audience were put in the places of generals in an army.
