right up! Step right up to the greatest show on planet Mirth - Freakshow
that is. Maybe the sky really is falling, or maybe it's just the
fear factory, pumping out propaganda. Yes, in Scare City, they sell
fear like bottled water, but the circus has come to town.
Feminista returns, loud and proud with thirteen chances to see their
brand new fall performance, The Fearless Freakshow.
It's a three ring extravaganza, (executive, legislative, and judicial)
that examines life in the terrified, corporatized, militarized,
post-neighborhood Information Age. The anxiety-provoking horrors
of war and surveillance, immigration and homophobia, corruption
and homelessness, health insurance and global warming, fears of
abandonment and fears of intimacy all collide in the unified fun
house of the creative mind. You'll cringe! You'll wince! You'll
quake in your boots and wet your pants. The alternative reality
of the freak show illuminates the denial and delusions created to
distract us from what we really should be afraid of: our complacency,
consumption, alienation, and ignorance.
Freaks perform comedy, drama, video, magic, and music in the latest
political cabaret to hit the streets and blow your fears away.
Take sanctuary from the terrorists; come see the freaks and be
inspired in all the realms of fearlessness. Escape from the theater
of terror to the theater of the possible and fight back against
the psychological warfare that's controlling our culture.
show features Mo, Oak, Raven, Andrea, Holly and Caitlin as performers,
with videos by Libby and Joy.
