Goldenbaum’s “May All Dictators Fall,” written in response to the Arab Spring, offers audiences new ways to consider democratic ideals. And J. Antunes “What Should We Do?” reverberates with the recorded sounds of police dislocating people in a favela and asks us all to consider the moral questions that privilege and wealth pose for the rest of society.
