Kevin Augustine’s LONE WOLF TRIBE presents “Hobo Grunt Cycle” @ Dixon Place

A was invited to photograph Kevin Augustine’s  “Hobo Grunt Cycle” piece which opens at Dixon Place tonight (Friday 2/28/14)

Fridays & Saturdays at 7:00pm
February 28, March 1, 7, 8, 14 & 15

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.
