"Darlings and dullards! Peel up your eyeballs and open your
wallets for the most depraved, most fantastic show on earth!"

Based on the thirty-third canto of Dante's Inferno, Ugo's Last Dance is a haunting musical about three clowns, whose fame as political commentators under the previous regime, leads themunder a tyrannical usurperto languish their days away in a jail cell, where the play is set.

Through performance, puppetry, and the live accompaniment of folk rock band Moore & Sons, Ugo's Last Dance will transport you to a magical and sinister land, where memories and illusion intertwine, reality becomes fiction, and where every moment is a struggle to hold on to your humanity.
