Director Statement

With the proliferation of conspiracy theories in our political discourse today and the blatant disregard for facts, TARAC WIPPP addresses how these political exploits are utilized by politicians, lobbyists and corporate donors alike. Creating a vaudevillian allegory with Gallospole and his cast of characters conveys the dark absurdity and depravity of our current state of affairs.

Gallospole, the ringmaster, leads the audience on an entertaining and jarring presentation, exploiting his subjects like Chris Christie and Kevin Smith, both Americans with metabolic differences, to demonstrate how they’re victimized, not just by him, but by the weaponization of chairs. To make the presentation even more compelling, he adds a troupe of puppets, or dancing lobbyists, to amplify this conspiracy.

To support this TARAC WIPPP conspiracy, #FearTheChair, #MindTheChair and #SeatSizeMatters are hashtags commonly used on its social media channels. As found in our political environment today, these tactics help mobilize movements to give conspiracy theories life. It’s a very effective form of exploiting fears and proliferating disinformation which ultimately benefit peddlers like Gallospole.

Allegorically and tragically, TARAC WIPPP mirrors our current state of affairs. Enjoy the show!
