A zany group of clown musicians and a clan of clay tossed dancers roam a barren land in this new Imago work. The clowns’ thoughts arise and pass like clouds, with outbursts of absurdity that clash with absurdity as the dating game appears out of no where, and thoughts further a psychedelic and existential humor, while joy and pathos skim through their nonsensical word play as they search to make camp. The clowns are constantly interrupted by a clan of dusty dancers who live in a world beyond speech. Questions arise and try to land, yet open up to further questioning, and the talk of sadness is easily eclipsed by looking at the stars. Tater, the most vulnerable of the clowns, yearns to fly again.
“Few theater artists are as adept at creating surprising, self-contained worlds through minimal means (movement, light, sound) as Mouawad.” – Brett Campbell, Oregon Arts Watch
