“Often playful, but also mournful and even foreboding.” - The Guardian
Boom Arts proudly presents Teatr-Pralnia (Laundry Theatre) with CCA Dakh of Ukraine in their first-ever U.S. tour. This fearless music-theater ensemble, sister troupe to the international sensation DakhaBrakha, draws on real time events, Facebook feeds, iconic Ukrainian poetry, catchy vamps and improvised action to bring their audacious, super-charged puppet cabaret production TseSho?/What’s That? to life. Through live music, projections, puppetry and original text and songs, they ask: How do we understand the world around us? Who can we trust in a world of “fake news,” corruption and propaganda? Can we discern truth from deception? As one ensemble member told The Guardian newspaper: “Our performances are like a mirror of things that are happening ... We want our performance to be like an injection for people’s minds.”
Age recommendation: 14+ (21+ on October 20 & 27).
