DESCRIPTIONS OF TOURING PRODUCTIONS: 

_____________________________________________________________

Faust 3

After Faust 2’s contract with the devil came to an end — because the guest had been fulfilled and satisfaction had been achieved — Faust 2 died. But the demand for more light which Goethe issued at his own death requires a new model of Faust, an actor in the history of light, a conspirator who pursues the disordering of the existing order of life, & sides with the Proletariat’s demand for the radicalization of leisure. Gargoyles are employed to manage the uneasy masses. Both devil & angel, disguised as undercover agents, accompany Faust 3’s journey through the mess of the modern empire all the way to the glorious final appearance of the Here.

Underneath the Above Show #1 (inspired by the forthcoming elections in the greatest country in the history of the world) 

 

This show takes place in a distant, mountainous country much different from ours, where successive unsuccessful cardboard kings reign with fleeting promise over an over-life-size, technicolor cardboard electorate, operated by a hardhat workforce prone to coffee breaks, until the eternally-hopeful population installs a jolly old god in the highest office of the land. It’s a hilarious, timely antidote to the election-themed entertainment on TV. And, with its raucous energy and bright palette, it makes a fortalizing fall hurrah!

The Seditious Conspiracy Theater Presents: A Monument for the Political Prisoner Oscar Lopez Rivera

 

From the meaning of the word “conspiracy” to the indictment of “seditious conspiracy,” a group of competent clowns supported by a chorus of seditious conspiracy dancers demonstrate the effects of U.S. actions on the island of Puerto Rico, as well as the power of the government over the individual freedom fighter by highlighting the stages in Oscar’s life that led to his incarceration.

The Whatforward Circus

 

In which a group of stone-age technology puppeteers, brass players, and percussionists check out the prominent forwardmoving passions and politics of our capitalist culture, and make real and unreal against-the-grain proposals to identify and fight the anonymous monster, the big fat Wrong; complete with Mongolian hordes, singing toilets and stilted flying businessmen!
