A rift is coming. An opportunity to shift. On one side of the rift the world will be the same: traffic jams, gated communities, hollowed-out cities. The other side will look the same, only void of people. Two nearly-identical worlds, one in decline and the other ripe with hope. You have a choice to make. The few who shift over will reside in a new America. They'll have the opportunity to start over and get things right. But the rift hasn't happened yet. It's time to prepare.
Award-winning theater ensemble Mugwumpin returns to Z Space in March with its unique blend of bracingly original staging, precise physicality, and sharp-toothed humor. Inspired by the riotous variety of prophetic movements throughout America's history, Mugwumpin's immersive performance escorts the audience through an unstable terrain of wrought-iron certainty and gnawing doubt. The ensemble brings its unsettlingly humorous and clear-eyed view to examine what America has promised us and what is asked of us in return.
