David Byrne musical 'Here Lies Love'

David Byrne musical 'Here Lies Love'; ENGLAND: London: INT ***FLASHING LIGHTS*** David Byrne (Creator, 'Here Lies Love') interview (partly overlaid) SOT - was completely peaceful, no-one killed / model for things happening all over the world Q: are you a revolutionary? David Byrne SOT - in that sense yes / you want to feel when there's injustice and inequality in the world, you want to feel is there some way this can be rectified Q: get that sense in what you wrote about New York David Byrne SOT - besides the fact that rents are expensive in certain parts of town, the middle classes are shrinking so there's some upper and a lot of lower, less and less middle / the middle is often the artists, musicians, theatre people who have made enough money so they can actually make a living of their art entertaining the rest of us / those people are... not able to survive any more / that's a bad omen for quality of life Q: do you think that's getting worse? David Byrne SOT - now that affects me personally / although I have great love for contemporary art, I realise that more and more when I go to galleries, I view the art as decoration for a wealthy person's collection or apartment / my vision has been coloured Q: you want change? David Byrne SOT - yes, peacefully / in the USA we don't live in a democracy any more / money gets the bills passed / rest of us who don't have personal lobbyists... are left with laws we have no say in / democracy is gone
