In the lounge Associative Behavior in the Fifth Species Joanie Fritz Zosike
About This Show
Joanie Fritz Zosike’s Associative Behavior in the Fifth Species combines music, pith, silliness and sedition in a lightning revue that examines immigration, bias and exclusion with a sacred clown’s eye. The clown is Peter Dizozza, author of Associative Behavior, a short play with music featuring Joanie, Peter, Robert Hieger and Maira Vergara. The evening also includes Colloquy of the Fifth Species, a short dialogue between Joanie and special guest, Robbie McCauley; and Peter, Joanie and Robbie performing songs about immigration, exclusion and love. A rich association of artists at play. You are welcome!
