Amy, a misshapen and shameless mountain climber is thrilled, to a disturbing degree, to share the life story and message of Scott Dinsmore, a recently-deceased, wildly-successful entrepreneur, whose life’s work was inspiring people all over the world to do what they love. But is Amy celebrating Dinsmore or warning us?

Can Amy be trusted to tell us the truth? Through storytelling, puppetry, catastrophic mime, and lip syncing to Joni Mitchell, Amy gleefully complicates the ethos that equates doing what you love with success.

“It’s vile and provocative, but it’s also a very sly, smart commentary on a culture busily amusing itself as it slides off this mortal coil, too afraid to talk about serious things, and too busy dumbing itself down.” – A Beast In A Jungle 

Directed by Gabriel McKinney

AS BOUFFONS…

WE BELIEVE denial is our muse.
WE CELEBRATE difficult truths with gratuitous abandon.
WE DISTILL the complexity of societal dysfunction into grotesque physical comedy.
WE ARE POETS who hate seriousness.
WE ARE PROPHETS who hate didacticism.
WE ARE PLEASURE SEEKERS who hate judgment.
WE INVITE you to join us and laugh your ass off while we fart all over your sensibilities.
