These are the Best Bets for November 2019!
Space Kumite @ BROS (Baltimore Rock Opera Society)
Join the Baltimore Rock Opera Society for our next original rock opera production! Space Kümité is a live event that combines theater, music, audience participation, the spirit of professional wrestling, and the flavor of 80’s action and sci-fi movies.
Welcome to the Ilion, a generation ship flung into space by Earth’s tech geniuses centuries ago to escape a dying planet. The ship left with no destination, and the search for a new home continues to this day. In 300 years trapped on a ship, conflict was bound to arise. The A.I.s that run the ship couldn’t allow open warfare to erupt. Instead, all beefs are settled in the ritual competition of fighting, singing, and loud insults known as “The Kümité”.
Now, a signal has been detected. It might be the first sign of life from Earth in ages. Maybe even a distress signal. The crew of the ship is in turmoil. Turn around and save Earth? Stick to the mission and find a planet? Accept their fate and stay on the ship?
As a Space Kümité attendee, you will join the crew.
You will hear the choices argued in song. In shouted insults and arguments, and unarmed, zero-gravity combat.
You will judge their merit.
You will decide who fights, and who wins.
You, and your crewmates, will determine the fate of the ship, and perhaps, all of humanity.
At Peabody Heights Brewery 11/8 – 11/23
