Prepare to be transported to the realm of Hybrid Peasant, a three-act tragic comedy operetta that delves deep into the enigmatic landscape of the “Nightmerican dream.” Richard Kennedy creates a mirror, reflecting the dystopian realities of society under capitalism, experienced through the lives of “the housed citizens of Hirth.” This disruptive piece unravels the narrative of a workers’ uprising, all the while challenging our very notions of value, progress, and the all-too-common “crabs in a barrel” mentality that permeates the world of public housing and makes light of bottoming for capitalism.
Kennedy beckons us to surrender to the boundless potential within ourselves. Through his work, he provides us with the keys to unlock dormant abilities and teaches us how to take flight. It’s a powerful call to action, urging us to ascend collectively by nourishing each other, forging a path towards liberation.
