Ubu the King

Tue., July 26, 7:30-9:30 p.m.

On tour from Chicago! Rough House Theater is hitting Detroit with their production of Ubu the King– Alfred Jarry's 1896 masterpiece of absurdo-surrealism, elaborately retold with original music and over 70 stunning hand-crafted puppets. Ubu the King brings Jarry’s seminal satire to life in all its absurd, grotesque glory. In the hands of five power hungry puppeteer-performers, Pa Ubu murders, lies, and farts his way up to the Polish throne – and back down again. Beautifully designed and meticulously realized Ubu the King is ridiculous, heartbreaking, and spectacular. $7 - $10

An exhibit juried by Peter Baker. This exhibition explores the generational, ethnographic, cultural, and anthropological ideals of what the word American means. From fresh apple pie to Budweiser, the Star Spangled Banner to Party in the USA, what is the modern American experience? Are we entering the sci-fi World of Tomorrow, longing for the Norman Rockwell past, or painting ourselves into an Idiocracy? If our culture is our biggest export, what kind of image are we presenting to the world? We had over 300 submissions from all over the country. Free
