Happenstance Theater’s ADRIFT | A Medieval Wayward Folly is inspired by medievalimagery and archetypes collected from the works of Hieronymus Bosch, Pieter Bruegel, the Major Arcana of the Tarot, and reinterpretations of religious and alchemical art. Drawing parallels between our current moment and the “dark ages,” the ensemble explores foolishness, mystery, mortality and absurdity. Accompanied by live music, puppetry, movement and minimal text. Like a ship of fools, this pod of eccentrics will drift into the world to bring delight, share hopes and fears, find a way forward, and then parade away.
Featuring Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, Gwen Grastorf, Sarah Olmsted Thomas, and Alex Vernon.
