Political puppetry and savage spectacle meet in a fantastical new portrait of Vladimir Putin, created in collaboration with The ACME Corporation. This ostentatious piece blends fable, melodrama, and theatre to create something entirely new and thrillingly strange. Putin is elevated from man to myth, stretching through time to become more deity than dictator, which calls forward disparate parts of history for side-by-side examination. Cycles of power, control, and political currency are laid bare in a world where authority is created from thin air and passed like a baton, begging a simple question: has anything really changed? World premiere.
