Poems by Charles Baudelaire
Choregraphy and Direction by Jerry Mouawad
Artistic Co-director Jerry Mouawad will stage a large ensemble movement/text/new performance work about a group of inmates in an institution who are propelled to perform a series of Baudelaire poems (from Paris Spleen.) Mouawad staged two Baudelaire pieces this last summer in Imago’s Soiree #1 with a very positive response from the audience. In Paris Spleen, Baudelaire travels in three primary areas – Paris, his own views of art and himself as an artist, and the world of the mythological. In an investigation of these three realms, Mouawad and his characters will be searching for the identity of the space and the inhabitants of this space.

After a two-year haitus Carol Triffle retuns with an original work titled Cloud, a semi-linear romp into the unexpected chaos of Bridget’s unstable world. Bridget follows on the hills of Triffle’s heroines – female, young, brilliant but lost. Of Triffles’ past works Beaux Arts Club, Splat, The Dinner, the critics have raved. “Twisted and delightful fever” said the Willamette Week; “Wierdly Brilliant” glowed The Oregonian. Triffle’s work is funny but hard to pigeonhole. It’s a theatre that steps way out of the box. For Imago’s playwright in residence, the stage is a place to display a universe that resembles the reality of our everyday world “but spins that reality to create poetic and comedic treats. A cocktail of events that, when stirred, becomes unexpected combustion.
