Bucko: Whaleman!

June 23, 2017
7:00 pm
Hyde Street Pier, San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park

Meet Captain Bucko and his scurvy crew, on the crest of the most bountiful whale hunt of their careers. But where does mans ambition end? How do you lay down your harpoon and bring home the haul when the thrill of the hunt consumes you? Come join the slaughter ye salty dogs! Set in the heart of San Francisco's historic maritime center, this site-specific original production uses the provocative humor of bouffon* to investigate religion, natural resource consumption, racism and privilege in maritime history and juxtapose these subjects with our modern times. *A form of grotesque satirical physical theatre in which characters on the outskirts of society use subversive humor and ecstatic play to highlight ignored or marginalized issues. Antic in a Drain combines circus, clown, bouffon and improvisational audience interaction, developing extreme characters and telling stories from the fringes, igniting dialogue and change within communities around ignored or taboo social issues.
