The Pirates of Carthage is a play by Daniel Kelly which examines the recent uprising

across Tunisia alongside The Mercenary War (264-241 BC) in the ancient city of Carthage.

The stories of uprising and rebellion from different centuries are relayed in parallel on

stage using the media in which Kelly first experienced them, Gustave Flaubert historical

novel Salammbo, and the ubiquitous social networking platform Twitter.

Fusing spoken word, video montage and Tunisian Hip-Hop, The Pirates of Carthage

questions our increasing dependence on the media for information and explores how we

connect with the world around us.

The Pirates of Carthage will consists of a live stage event, Interactive radio performance,

artist talk and ongoing online archive and an accompanying publication.

Daniel Kelly is a visual artist with a multi media practice that look at personal history in

relation to shifting notions of class and it’s importance to national identity in a world of

hyper-communications. Kelly graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 2007. His

recent exhibitions include East End Academy at the Whitechapel Gallery, London and

Eastwing ix at Sommerset House, London
