Lay of the Land and Let Them Eat Cake Draw the Battle Lines

Return of the downtowners--new work from Tim Miller and Holly Hughes

But it isn't federally legal yet, and might not be for some years. The states that Hughes's emblems traverse are mostly clustered far from those whose state-college football mascots come to Miller, in his vision, conspiring to rescue him from this or that rotten political decision quashing equality, overlooking hate crimes, subjugating politics to precisely the establishment of religion the framers feared. The land is troubled; too many children, taught that displays of affection within a single gender are dangerous, are killing themselves or being killed. And performance art is a very small flashlight in the darkness, looking for a sense of fairness that somehow got mislaid. We're a very careless nation.
