about

First staged in March 2003, Mockracy 2008 uses music and theater to make a mockery of that political spectacle known as democracy, American style.

Mockracy splits the contemporary orchestra into Republicans and Democrats, House and Senate, with the President and Mrs. President on hand, and an Our Town-on-acid narrator. The media-industrial complex is deployed in live video and nostalgic clips from past campaigns. Deploying the Bay Area’s best new-music and improvising musicians, this Mocktober Surprise serves up a surge of boots on the stage.

Mockratic Episodes:

1. Processional: War
2. Parade and Inaugurations
3. Campaign
4. Policy
5. Enhanced Interrogation

INTERMISSION

6. The Hanoi Jane Show
7. Whisper Campaign
8. Roll Call and Vote
9. Endless Campaign: War

Track Name: Death March
Weapons of mass destruction, fighting terrorism now
Weapons of mass destruction, and the fighting's only just begun
Saddam Hussein's a madman, bent on curbing our freedom
We're gonna stop him with good old American know-how, by gum! So,
We'll use some mass destructive weapons on his population
Weapons of mass destruction, and democracy will flower!
