description. Inspired by Shakespearean bits from The Merchant of Venice and Taming of the Shrew and, of course, Trump and his insane backtracking double-talk, we bring to you a young clown just trying to make his way in this crazy world. [reality correction] explores how a blatant lie can become stark truth when a demagogue has willing underlings. Using Lecoq-inspired movement techniques, our clown navigates a Big Brother-esque voice as it gives him tasks that are impossible to complete and directly contradict each other.
We ask our clown to choose between serving his audience and obeying his overlord: Can he keep both happy, or, at least, keep one in the dark? Will he have a job after tonight? Will his overlord even let him finish this show? Or will he finally impeach--sorry, overthrow his overlord? Find out just whose reality is being corrected.
