Long Live Scandal!

A one-of-a-kind performance loosely based on the life of Hugo Ball, one of the founders of the highly influential Dada anti-art movement. Through Ball’s story the show explores themes of art, love, faith, and the unexpected cost of pushing the boundaries.

Best Experimental Show, 2011 Capital Fringe Festival


For nearly all of this anarchic performance, the actors controlling the puppets are visible, and it is the performers’ unstoppable exuberance that dominate the show — and what make it so much fun...If this sounds like an hour of sheer zaniness, it is, and in the wrong hands that can become precious and boring. But PTC gets the tone just right, focused but flowing, outrageous without the smug self-consciousness of camp...In short, I had a great time.
