The Death of abbie hoffman
The Death of Abbie Hoffman is an absurdist piece of protest theatre that comments on contemporary politics and radicalism. It is inspired by a piece by Badal Sircar, the originator of political street theatre in India who was beaten to death in the middle of a performance. It uses a combination of spectacle, song, dance, and physicality in order to unleash an attack on the senses and provide a criticism of the idea of the death of critique and free thought. Performed through Basement Arts at the University of Michigan, in the Newman Studio of Walgreen Drama Center.
