The Grand Parade(Of the 20th Century)

Double Edge Theatre / Ashefield

“A rich, audacious vision of American history that should dazzle theatergoers from any generation.”

— DC Theatre Scene

A soaring spectacle of the 20th century inspired by Chagall

Created on a farm in Ashfield, Massachusetts, Double Edge Theatre’s surreal, theatrical collage takes us along a 100-year historic journey of the mythology of our time in a style inspired by visual artist Marc Chagall. Through a kaleidoscopic vision of humanity, The Grand Parade (of the 20th Century) blends circus, puppetry, dance and projections, juxtaposing iconic images of historic moments with Chagall’s vibrant paintings. From marked events including the moon landing, the skilled escapes of Houdini, the atomic bomb, the assassination of President Kennedy and the fall of the Berlin Wall, this work of memory and memorial celebrates where we are now by examining from where we have come.
