|Pocket Full of Change
|Mixing jazz, clowning, dance, and physical theatre, the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble probes the political landscape in its latest offering POCKET FULL OF CHANGE. From the deleterious effects of apathy and consumerism, to media manipulation and the rush to war, the ensemble deftly skewers its subjects with humor and insight. Appropriating concepts from jazz and popular music, Strike Anywhere’s performers act as different “instruments” or “parts of the band”. Imagine actors’ dialogue as a horn section or dancers’ movement as a visual baseline. And, as with jazz, the company improvises on the pieces every night making each performance unique. An unflinching set of questions are raised by the ensemble as they riff on topics such as civil liberties and healthcare in today’s society. It’s art that asks questions.
