Beginning November 14 and going through Saturday, Cangue League will be offering up another bizarre performance in The Death of Schopenhauer: An Avant Garde Opera at Dog Story Theater.

Showtimes are 8 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Cangue League first performed Flowers in March of 2011. The troupe has gone on to do four more, Revolutions, Skwert of Blood and Want Want Lovely Play were all performed at the intimate Dog Story Theater on Jefferson Avenue. Technicolor Yawn was a dinner theater staged at Mexicains Sans Frontieres.

Following in the vain of of the strange, The Death of Schopenhauer is described as a show "about the struggles of artistic vision in a strange land that trades in souls and body parts," says founding member Gary Perrine.

One never quite knows what to expect from a Cangue League show. The themes, often symbolic in nature, tend to lead toward the ambiguous. While it might leave some scratching their heads, others delight in the multi-interpretive avenue that Cangue League paves way for.
