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.
Opening the show is a clown car and this amazing puppet revealing a magic dog from his hat.
Great puppet animation work that brings this loving dog to life in front of your eyes.
There are many emotional moments in this play and wonderful acting by Kevin Augustine and his cast or actor/puppeteers.
