Contranyms (A Performance Ritual)

Rude Mechs

Remember in the not-too-distant past when American citizens from the far, far left and far, far right who were caught posting violent rhetoric online were sent to Chant Camps? The camps were supposed to re-train people to mean the same thing when they said words like ‘Democracy,’ ‘Love,’ and ‘Justice.’  Rudes revisit this alternative history and recreate the tragic ending that collapsed that timeline with the audience cast as inmates chanting along.

You may be asked to read English out loud during the performance. Contact us at before the show with accessibility questions or concerns.
