"Craven Monkey and the Mountain of Fury" returns

By popular demand, Piper McKenzie is presenting a remount of "Craven Monkey and the Mountain of Fury," one of the critical and popular hits of December 2009’s Fight Fest at The Brick Theater.

Can one perverted simian overcome his family, a gang of grotesque predators and Mother Nature herself to evolve to the next level of life? Or will he end up just another damn dead monkey?

Combining elements of comparative mythology, silent comedy, capoeira, video game violence and modern dance, Craven Monkey and the Mountain of Fury features a troupe of actor/dancers performing in the unique wordless style of Piper McKenzie’s “Bizarre Science Fantasy” series, which yielded Macbeth Without Words, Sexadelic Cemetery and a number of other singular theatrical experiences.

The result is a savage, sexy, slapstick spectacular that pumps new theatrical life into the notion of “survival of the fittest.”

Craven Monkey performs at The Brick Theater, 575 Metropolitan Avenue between Union and Lorimer streets in Williamsburg, February 26-27 at 10:30 p.m., March 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12; call 212-352-3101 or 212-868-4444 for more.
