The Rapture of Hugo Ball is a dark comedy by Creative Explorations staged as a radio show with live music and sound-effects. A satire tracing a performance-artist’s unsuccessful struggle to gain recognition and acclaim in an indi erent world, the protagonist nds himself thwarted at every turn by an arts culture rife with the rivalry of competing egos, choked by academic jargon and administered by independent bureaucratic gatekeepers. Though set in the realm of performance art, the tale equally applies to all the creative arts wherein the individual artist has to struggle to establish a viable career.
