ADRIFT | A Medieval Wayward Folly

Performance Dates
Opening Performance

Happenstance Theater, in residence at Joe's Movement Emporium, has created a new work inspired by medieval imagery and archetypes collected from the works of Hieronymous Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, the Major Arcana of the Tarot, and reinterpretations of religious and alchemical art.

Drawing parallels between our current moment and the "dark ages," the ensemble is exploring foolishness, mystery, the poetic and the absurd, angelic and rustic music, devised and existing text, puppetry and movement.

Like a ship of fools, this pod of eccentrics will drift into the world, bring delight, share hopes and fears, find a way forward, and then parade away.

Featuring Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, Gwen Grastorf, Sarah Olmsted Thomas and Alex Vernon.
