takes us behind the scenes to reveal the true reality of 1967’s summer of love.
This is the story of The Diggers, whose creative direct action has influenced artists and activists to this day.
Jonathan Myerson’s adaptation is a roller coaster ride containing no less that 114 speaking parts across the two episodes and features an original and vibrant soundtrack by Mzylkypop performed on vintage instruments.
Ringolevio overturns the typical image of the summer of love to create an authentic and inspiring alternative narrative.
