THE CROSSROAD: THE 7TH ANNUAL SURREALIST CABARET AND PUMPKIN WALK, October 2014
We found ourselves at the crossroads: That place where roads converge or diverge, depending on your perspective. The crossroads: a potent place of choice, of futures and pasts, a paused moment, a place where two realms touch. Taking inspiration from the character of the devil-at-the-crossroads, the devil as trickster, prophet, wisdom, self, deepest desire, inner demon, the arrow, the direction pointer. the Cabaret asked: What do we do now? How do we move forward not knowing what’s ahead on these roads? What is it that we most desire- enough to bargain with the devil? The crossroads: a juncture where consciousness must regard the unconscious, where our brain must confront our heart, where we must confront the necessity of choice and the immensity of our own part in our own fate upon choosing.
