“Panem et circenses. Bread and circuses. How the Romans kept the people passive. We’re addicted.” – Lobster, the Clown
As we did in “Monkey Gods,” Peter Saputo and I begin “Under the Big Top” mid-conversation at our usual table. It’s such a useful device, that table, so comfortable, so unobtrusive.
Peter wears a clown shirt and collar which neither of us acknowledge during a three-part conversation that touches on politics, ufology, Honey Boo Boo and other topics of national interest. His character emerges as a kind of messenger. My character doesn’t touch his coffee.
The Dream Logic moniker, repurposed from previous dream videos, seems a good fit for these pieces. Truth in advertising, you might say.
