    Presented by at MASS MoCA

    April 9, 2011



    Channeling the form and style of the original Chautauqua Lectures, cultural happenings of the late 19th and early 20th centuries that brought together speakers, teachers, musicians, entertainers, preachers and specialists of the day, National Theater of the United States of America combines lecture, debate, scientific demonstration and tales of explorers with more traditional forms of entertainment dance, dramatic recital, feats of strength, and joke telling. Chataqua examines the role of "entertainer" as well as "artist" and questions whether or not the convergence of art and commerce is possible, sustainable, or even a good idea. Winners of the 2007 Spalding Gray award honoring innovative theatrical vision, NTUSA offers a sly exploration of the relationship between High Culture and the Mass Mind.
