  (202) 488-3300

In this new and collaboratively devised ensemble work, six clowns portray oblivious entitlement on the brink of extinction, as the award-winning ensemble of Happenstance Theater takes a dive into the late Baroque. Beautiful at first, in the end the characters might just be revolting. As physical comedians, the company tackles wigs, panniers, gestural styling, elaborate ornamentation, graceful curves and the excesses of Rococo. As philosophers, they navigate the dangerous curves of the Age of Enlightenment. As clowns, they will make it playful.

Featuring: Sabrina Mandell, Mark Jaster, Gwen Grastorf, Karen Hansen, Sarah Olmsted Thomas, Alex Vernon
