Hacked…The Treasures of the Empire

It’s a ragtag band of rebels against the tentacles of a monstrous corporate conglomerate. Dizzying acrobatics and surrealistic puppetry collide on a floating stage in Caravan Stage Company’s latest, Hacked…The Treasures of the Empire. The heroes are the Merry Band of Hacker Pirates, and their nemesis is Mammon, the all-seeing, all-consuming monster that would run the world—if only it could find where the pirates have hidden the Treasure of the Empire. Exploring freedom of expression, privacy in the internet age, and the scarcity of justice in the Justice System, this acrobatic spectacular combines theater with digital effects to make parents stroke their chins and go “Hmm,” while children stroke their chins and go “Oooh.”

The Caravan Stage Company

Magic isn’t something that can be captured. It has to be chased. That’s why the Caravan Stage Company has never tied itself to one location. When it began putting on shows in the 1970s, it toured North America at the pace of a Clydesdale in its one-of-a-kind horse-drawn theater. Masking thoughtful social commentary in a circus-like extravaganza, the performances were staged in an 80-foot tensile tent known as the Cosmodrome. But after covering a staggering 20,000 miles from British Columbia to Florida, the troupe struck on an idea that would change the theater and expand its scope forever.

Enter the Amara Zee: a 30-meter long tall ship that company members built themselves, letting them travel to virtually any location with a waterway and an imagination. Recent years have caught the Society traveling across Europe, and their latest residency in New York City was described by the New York Times as “Cirque du Soleil meets Occupy Wall Street.”
