OSWEGO, NY- The Caravan Stage Company will float into Oswego Aug. 5 through 7 for three nights of high-flying, mesmerizing aerial acrobats and a world-renowned theatrical performance. This live performance is all done on a 90-foot tall ship, the Caravan Stage Tall Ship Theatre. The event is part of the H. Lee White Maritime Museum's "Arts on the Waterfront Series." Tickets are available for $10 pre-sale and $12 at the gate.
The Caravan performance known as "Hacked: the Treasure of the Empire" integrates text, poetry, video, humor, music, movement, masks, props and special effects into a magical theatrical experience that is both compelling and inspirational. The shows are staged on the entire deck, including the masts and rigging as well as on the water and land surrounding the vessel. "Hacked" is a contemporary tale set in a futuristic and dystopic world of pirate hacker activists taking on the largest global bank on the planet - the Mammon Corporation, residing in a "house-of-horrors"-esque superstructure.
"This may be one of the coolest, most unique performances of the summer," said Mercedes Niess, executive director of the H. Lee White Maritime Museum. "This performing group brings a combination of innovative stylistic staging, imaginative music and dance, and colorful entertaining themes!"
"Hacked" will also be performed at the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton Aug. 14 through 16, and their Saturday night showings have already sold out. The Caravan Stage Company has performed "Hacked" this year in Jacksonville FL, Portsmouth VA, Bivalve NJ, and Yonkers and Brooklyn NY.
Performances of "Hacked" start at 9 p.m. and last 90 minutes. The show is rated PG-13 as parental guidance is suggested. This event is lawn seating only and audience members are asked to bring lawn chairs and blankets. Tickets may be purchased at the H. Lee White Maritime Museum on the West First Street Pier in Oswego.
