¡CARPA! A new play by Billy Muñoz

Jump-Start Performance Co.
Playwright(s): Billy Muñoz

It is the 1930's. A travelling circus has stopped in a dusty East Texas town. A mysterious clown, an unhappy mermaid, a fortune-teller with a true gift and other assorted performers have no idea that their entire way of life is dying. Welcome to the end of the circus... it's going to be a magical show.
¡CARPA! by Billy Muñoz is a bittersweet exploration of the old-school travelling tent show as a metaphor for inevitable endings. The Sterling Houston Theater will be transformed into the carpa itself. Audience members will experience an interactive performance & video installation on and around the stage, viewing side-show acts (including fire-eating & aerial arts) and interacting with the performers, who have secrets to keep and intentions that are occasionally sinister.
