A performance of :HUMPTY
at The VORTEX in Austin, Texas
Ethos and The VORTEX present a performance of :HUMPTY livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer-produced HowlRound TV network on Friday 27 September 2019 at 9 p.m. EDT (New York) / 8 p.m. CDT (Chicago) / 6 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles). Add to Google calendar
General Humpty got cracked on the head during the War, and now he is behaving very badly. Loosely based on the nursery rhyme characters Humpty Dumpty, The Spoon, The Dish, The Cow, The Dog, and The Moon, ethos offers up a dark tale with adult aesthetics (not appropriate for children). Funny and disgusting, charming and startling, :Humpty features an all-star cast presenting an extraordinary and unconventional performance.
The story delves beneath the surface of the nursery rhymes, uncovering a story of War, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, slavery, and the disparity of wealth and poverty. Betrayal, magical armies, and mortal combat ensue as the characters fight for their lives, loves, and freedom. :Humpty defies expectation with a mix of live action, music, video, puppetry, movement, and humor. There is no “spoken” language in :Humpty, so this show is accessible to non-English speakers and deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences.
