Amelia Adams, Michael Cavanaugh, and Alex Corby are all well-trained, incredibly gifted performers in the ancient Italian art of Commedia Dell’Arte. They call themselves AlulA, a group they founded when they met at the Professional Training Program at the Dell’Arte School of Physical Theater. In case that sounds too dignified, do not be fooled. These three are clowns. And in the best tradition of clowns, they manage to skewer modern money, the financial system, politics, and women’s and reproductive rights in this show they created together. And lest you think that sounds a little serious, when the program says scatological, it is not metaphorical. There is no joke they won’t go after and no level they won’t sink to. The end result gets messy. That’s not a metaphor either.
Subject matter, language and costumes are not for children’s eyes or ears, nor for the easily offended. If you enjoy skewering the self-important, aren’t averse to exploring liberal politics, and enjoy bathroom humor (Who doesn’t?), this cannot be missed. You may also be in the mood for some incredible acrobatic feats and puppetry and just clowning around.
