Set within a pop-up banqueting hall, spectators will be immersed within a collage of America today—scenes and songs and dances inspired by Norman Rockwell of the fifties, and scenes and songs and dances inspired by the installation artist whose work most resonates in today’s culture of socio-political corruption, Jason Rhoades. Rockwell and Rhoades juxtaposed side by side—then and now, the fifties and the present, the red states and the blue states, where we grew up and where we live today, a piece that is, like America, permanently under construction.
“It is hard to think of a company better suited than Sledgehammer to stage Mee's Heaven on Earth… play welcomes the kind of 'in-your-face' direct address Sledgehammer pioneered” –TheatreForum
Sledgehammer_ has been San Diego’s premier alternative theater for over three decades. Known for their flamboyant, muscular, visually dense and provocative style, American Theater magazine observed “their name should be used as a verb, ‘to sledgehammer theater.’” They have produced site-specific work throughout San Diego and elsewhere, including New York City for the Whitney Museum of American Art.
