America, where are you?
When a few mild nutcases who know inside out what they are talking about take hold of the American Dream, it is really some show!


A bunch of very dynamic mild nutcases rummage through the bins of the American Dream. The actors of the Nature Theater of Oklahoma invent a new way of being on stage in a hilarious and over-excited atmosphere. This new show directed by Kelly Copper and Pavol Liska brilliantly remains on the ungraspable verge between realism and unrestrained imagination. It is as though ordinary conversations were taken from real life, from incognizant speakers, and suddenly revealed to everyone in full glittering daylight and accompanied by booming music. It is true that the theatre created by this New York company relies much on the discrepancy between a degenerate American dream feeding on mass culture and some hopelessly dull reality made of frustration. This clash between two contradictory universes gives birth to a raw – almost wild - dimension which, through a frightening new analysis of contemporary American clichés, creates an implacable effect of strangeness. The whole show flows out of a shaker agitated by amazing actors who are firmly determined to offer us the most unpredictable form of theater.
