The Narrator is Suspect - an immersive performance experience

Mad King Thomas presents their newest dance: 

The Narrator is Suspect

an immersive home performance

Over the past year and a half, Mad King Thomas has traveled to each of the places they grew up (and then some) on a quest to find out how they became who they are, to experience the culture that shaped them, and, like an awkward boyfriend, to meet the families they grew up in. In the resulting show,  Mad King Thomas leads you through a house sharing stories, lies, semi-religious episodes and decidedly secular cake. 

One part troubled relationship with Ken Burns, one part drunken stories around the Thanksgiving dinner table, three parts unanswerable questions, a smattering of death, intimacy and birthdays, and a dash of post-colonial consideration, The Narrator is Suspect is a performance about how we make home. And what better venue for a show about home than inside other people’s homes?

Your friends, our friends, and generous folks with a sense of adventure are hosting 10 shows throughout the Twin Cities.  Most of these are private, but two shows in the Powderhorn neighborhood are open to the public-at-large. 

 Friday March 28 and Satruday March 29 at 8pm!

Sliding Scale $10-20
Reservations are required as space is extremely limited.

Please e-mail for tickets. Include your name, number of tickets desired, and date of show you wish to attend.  Mad King Thomas will confirm your reservation and send you the address and further details.

Please note: The public shows move through a two-story house; audience must be able to climb a staircase and stand for short periods of time. If you have limitations that do not allow this, or if you have other handicapped-accessible needs, please let us know in your reservation e-mail. We will do our best to accommodate you.

This project has been made possible with generous support from a Jerome Foundation 50 year Anniversary Grant and was developed in part though The Inkub8 Residency Program, funded through John S. and James L. Knight Foundation's KnightArts Challenge Grant.
