Challenging war’s legitimacy with LWT’s signature puppets and poetic imagery, Hobo Grunt Cycle is a theatrical circus pantomime compassionately focusing on a path to peace. Forging empathic links between wounded soldiers and rescued fighting dogs, writer, performer & director Kevin Augustine premieres his tribe’s latest work in a NY debut and a Dixon Place commission. Augustine, as a silent tramp, alongside a foam-rubber cast of life-sized pit bulls, disabled American veterans and a cadre of competing circus clowns, exposes the post-war legacy of soldiers while raising questions about peace and healing in our daily lives.
