The Permanent Revolution, an original play by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes, explores the tensions between two great economic ideologies that still have resonance in contemporary culture: socialism and capitalism. 
As a new departure from the artist’s Baby Marx series—an exploration of the contradictions that occur between these two currents of thought through marionettes of characters that include Vladimir Lenin, Ernesto “Che” Guevara, Karl Marx, Adam Smith and Milton Friedman—The Permanent Revolution gathers, for the first time in Mexico, these celebrated thinkers to discuss their revolutionary ideas and disproportionate ambitions.
