CULTUREMART 2014: Send for the Million Men Joseph Silovsky

Funding

Additional support provided by the Axe-Houghton Foundation, Jim Henson Foundation, EMPAC, and St. Ann’s Warehouse Puppet Lab. Space and residency support has been provided by a DPI (Digital Performance Institute) residency, Mount Tremper Arts, and a space grant from Associated Hole Productions, a division of Radiohole.

About the show

Send for the Million Men examines the controversial executions of Sacco and Vanzetti. Their case was the Cause Célèbre of the 1920s and still enflames passionate responses from advocates and detractors alike. In collaboration with Victor Morales (video designer/performer) and Catherine McRae (sound), and working in his unique style of oratory, robotics and puppetry, Silovsky illuminates the humor and tragedy in the story and connects it to today’s political strife as well as his own micro-tragic biography.
