The Dada Play – Final Weekend

Posted 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.

Friday March 16 at 7:30pm

Saturday, March 17 at 7:30pm

Sunday March 18 at 2:00pm
