Mixed theatre, dance, music, poetry, & projections
Please, please, please believe the hype… 65 minutes of seamless and exuberantly integrated dance, animation, poetry and dopey archival footage… just on the right side of the madness-brilliance divide.

An exaggerated romp through the work of Toronto Concrete Poetry collective "the Four Horsemen," this piece by Volcano Theatre and Crooked Figure Dances has toured many times and garnered numerous awards around the world.
Projected simultaneously onto the floor and back wall of the stage from two projectors, archival footage of the original group and animated typography based on the poetry and graphic work of the Four Horsemen vie with dancing, singing, yelling and whispering performers for the audience's attention.
