Dictafone Danny is a man with a dictafone. He speaks into it and then writes down the words, hoping to make sense. He lives in Europe, mainly in the UK but has been known to travel. He sometimes reads his work aloud but not always. He likes wine and yoga, meditation and rugby as well as jogging but never does any of these things at the same time - it would be dangerous, very dangerous.
He has no schedule or business plan and hopes to die peacefully in his bed with a carrot stuck up his arse. He thinks he might release some more work sometime soon ... but then again he may not.
This short piece is a meditation on the last series of protests in Burma. It deals with the attempted uprisings from the point of view of three symbolic protagonists, a humble clerk who works for the regime, a senior Buddhist monk who has found himself embroiled in the politics of the military government and the dying general who is still able to justify his barbaric actions.
