HOTEL GONE


Contemporary Dance with Live Music
DECEMBER 14, 16, 17, 21, 22, & 23

 

Choreographer Jerry Mouawad pushes, pulls and shoves five characters into a hotel lobby where identities shift, love is uncertain, and souls search for substance. Check-in and check-out become a commitment to live or run away. Live music drifts through HOTEL GONE as motifs propel dancing travelers through coat racks, exiting and entering a world of timeless seduction and trapped mysteries.

FROGZ - returns


DEC 8, 2017 - JAN 7, 2018

 

FROGZ put Imago on the international map. The simplicity and the charm of the show catapulted the production to two Broadway runs at the acclaimed New Victory Theatre in 2000 and 2002. Variety Magazine called it "Felliniesque mayhem." The New York Times raved,"A mastery of mime, dance and acrobatics." Recommended for ages 3 and older.

THE REUNION


January 12 to January 20, 2018

"…Makes you laugh out loud while it’s quietly breaking your heart. … a well-paced hour and packs the concise wallop of a good novella, …animated jaunt through the Sunday comics, a cartoon landscape inhabited by characters with the oddball normality of the townsfolk in Robert Altman’s Popeye … settle slowly, almost imperceptibly, into a deep and moving contemplation of the human condition… the trap door of humanity and opens it to a miracle of grace"

HUMAN NOISE


SEPT 21 - SEPT 30

SHORT STORY MEETS THE STAGE.

 

Fans of Raymond Carver, one of the 20th century's most vital short story writers, will be delighted to find four of his earliest works staged in  HUMAN NOISE, three stories and a poem directed and choreographed by Imago Theatre’s Jerry Mouawad. The stories include “Gazebo,” “A Serious Talk,” “Neighbors,” and the poem “Torture.” All the pieces explore the intimate and sometimes unusual struggles and passions of male female relationships.
