About this show

Mixing jazz, clowning, theatre, and modern dance, the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble probes the political landscape in its latest offering, Pocket Full of Change. Appropriating concepts from jazz and popular music, Strike Anywhere's performers act as different "instruments" or "parts of the band." And, as with jazz, the company improvises on the pieces every night making each performance unique. From the ill-effects of apathy and consumerism, to media manipulation and the rush to war, the ensemble raises an unflinching set of questions as it riffs with humor and insight on topics such as civil liberties, capitalism, and healthcare in today's society.
