Hinterlands reprises “The Radicalization Process,” opens September 23
The Hinterlands will reprise their Wilde-award nominated play, The Radicalization Process, September 23–October 2.
The Radicalization Process explores the intersection between radical politics and radical art. Layering historical accounts of the radical left in the 1960’s and 70’s with a master class in American method acting, socialist pageantry, and a gleefully obtuse re-production of The Living Theatre’s Antigone, The Radicalization Process stokes the embers of America’s past revolutions to ignite the country’s radical potential.
All shows are at Play House (12657 Moran St., Detroit). Tickets are $10-$30, priced on a sliding scale. Seating is limited – please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org or call 313.454.1756.
Also, this run is being presented in conjunction with Cranbrook Art Museum’s current exhibition “Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia.” Anyone who attends The Radicalization Process also gets free admission to Hippie Modernism at Cranbrook. It is a fascinating exhibition that provides other viewpoints into the research tackled with the play. Hinterlands members will speak as a part of the exhibit’s Free Radicals symposium from 1:00–4:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 9 at Cranbrook.
