The Dada Play – Final WeekendPosted on: Mar 15, 2018
The Dada Play by Mieko Ouchi
Three More Performances next weekend
THE DADA PLAY highlights the smashing together of two revolutions born on the same small street in Zurich in 1916 during World War I. In a small bar, Hugo Ball, an unknown writer/musician transforms a rag tag gang of exiled avant-garde artists into a collective powerhouse as they come together to form The Dada Art Movement, while in a tiny room above them, Vladimir Ilyitch Lenin, a little known philosopher and thinker, watches their cabarets, drinks his Pernod and plans the Communist Revolution. Set in the multilingual and multicultural chaos of tiny Switzerland, awash in exiles, pacifists, artists, quivering in the shadow of the bloodiest war to date in Europe, we watch the simultaneous birth of modernism in art and the biggest social revolution the world has ever seen.
