Goodbye to All That – Toronto Fringe 2016 Press Release

goodbye to all that

From press release

As a part of the 2016 Toronto Fringe Festival, Mirabilis Productions celebrates the centennial anniversary of the creation of the original punk anti-war art movement, Dadaism, in Zurich, Switzerland, 1916 and the fighting of WWI with the presentation of the original work Goodbye To All That.

For six brief months in 1916 in Zurich, Switzerland, The Cabaret Voltaire was the epicentre of a movement that revolutionised modern thought. Through the rejection of form, tradition, orthodoxy and the rigid social thought that gave rise to WWI, this self-immolating movement achieved a viral thought revolution that spread throughout western society, giving rise to the artistic and social expression we take for granted today.

A disgraced pilot stumbles into this milieu, wracked with shame and guilt for having violated his nation, duty and honour. Through participation in the subversive performative expression of Dada, he attempts to extricate himself from the powerful social and moral forces that drove mass slaughter on the battlefields of Europe.
