The Art is Medicine Show rides again!
Celebrating 9 years of free, bilingual, bicycle-powered theater!
STOP THAT SHOW!
The Imaginists are interrupted, censored, and silenced while trying to perform their original bilingual adaptation of Horacio Quiroga's Juan Darién. The infamous President Corn and his bumbling sidekick Senator Cracker sabotage the Imaginists’ performance in order to perform their own agenda called “Let’s Make America Pretty Good Again Summertime Extravaganza” with an ode to the almighty dollar. What ensues is an all out theatrical show-down, thank goodness Mother Earth and her posse arrive to empower the artists & audience and give a much needed TIME OUT to the “malcriados”. A sly mash up of the classic story by Horacio Quiroga, The Emperor's New Clothes, Cinderella, weekly headlines and anything else we can throw in the bike trailers! The Imaginists’ 9th annual free bilingual, bicycle-powered summer tour takes the current political moment head-on with a satirical, over-the-top show fit to entertain all ages.
