The Rapture of Hugo Ball is a rollicking satire staged as an experimental radio comedy with hard hitting live music and sound effects created before your eyes by an multi-talented cast. The story follows unknown Irish performance artist, Fergal Greene, as he struggles to gain recognition in a fickle contemporary Art world.
With the ghost of Hugo Ball, the founder of modern Performance Art, as his guide, Greene reviews the key moments of his career only to see himself thwarted at every turn by an arts culture rife with competing egos and choked by academic jargon . How much must an artist sacrifice in order to gain recognition? Sleep? Financial security? Friendship? Sanity? Love?
