BrouHaHa: A state of social agitation when a minor incident gets out of control. Typically, it is marked by controversy and fuss that can seem, afterwards, irrational.
In this newly devised, clown-esque piece, Happenstance Theater's ensemble pares down to the raw essentials: Each of us has one character, one costume, one case. This troupe of eccentrics is on the precipice at the end of the world. Their curiosity lights up the darkness like a firecracker. What happens in that moment of illumination?
BrouHaHa is a funny and poetic escapade inspired by images of refugees fleeing on foot, Edwardian workers, cinematic treasures like La Strada and The Seventh Seal, and the existential comedy of Samuel Beckett.
