This new work combines puppetry, clownery, and drag through live theater and multimedia elements. It is set in a madcap world populated by characters like anthropomorphic Skittles, Nixon's dead dog, a talking Comet pizza slice, a mob of Beanies Babies, and a demoniac clown named Old Put (Scieszka's alter ego). The cast of puppets satirize the wacky conspiracy theories that spawn in dark corners of the internet and contribute to the polarized socio-political landscape in the United States. Over the course of the performance follow Old Put's meteoric rise from humble content creator, who unboxes dolls on Youtube, to celebrity influencer at the center of a disinformation campaign. If you have missed the show - watch it ONLINE May 26th at 7pm.
Curated by Isabella Achenbach, Eduardo Andres Alfonso, Angelica Arbelaez, Min Sun Jeon, and Guy Weltchek.
