A Theatrical DaDA Diversion

Happenstance Theater
October 26 – November 12

The DC City Paper says “These merry pranksters get it!…glorious nuggets of nonsense…a delightful romp through the surreal…an extra-sensory extravaganza…it is belly-laugh humor”.

The Washington Post called it “…an ingeniously oddball deconstruction…brash…seductive…Futurism and dadaism pulsed with revolutionary zeal”.


The setting is the surrealist Cabaret ReVoltaire owned by Madam Proprietor and operated by Middle-Man and the New Girl.

It is wartime. The guests are Visionaries. A Futurist and Dadaist walk into the bar. This is not a joke. Art becomes life.

Beware of Forgeries!

Text is from ACTUAL Manifestos. See the Capitalist and Communist tango and watch beauty rise from the absurd.

These are trying times, MANIFESTO excites everything!

Featuring Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, Gwen Grastorf, Sarah Olmsted Thomas, Alex Vernon and Mark Winch.
