Topple is an original song and video, from the album called “In the realm of a dying star.” The video reenacts a history of toppled statues symbolizing colonialism and institutionalized oppression, as an encouragement for the same to happen in the United States. It is joining the conversation that has been going on for years– calling for confederate statues to be taken down. The sets and miniatures are exact replicas of the historical scenes and statues that were toppled in other countries by its citizens, including Christopher Columbus in Caracas, Joseph Stalin in Kiev, Bashar al-Assad in Raqqa, Louis XIV in Paris, Cecil John Rhodes in Cape Town and King George in New York during the birth of the US.
