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 included in HUMAN NOISE are “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. Carver's precise and explosively simple narratives expose veins of Northwest Americans. He was born in Clatskanie, Oregon and spent most of his time on the west coast. Carver wrote fiction and poetry that spotlighted a working class of people often absent from the literary slicks of his time, but people who nonetheless populated his vigorous imagination until his death in 1988. He crafted stories rife with tension, history and an impending sense of conflict to come. Jerry Mouawad, Imago’s Artistic Co-Director, is no stranger to staging literary giants. His most recent credits include two works by contemporary composer David Lang at the Portland Opera. This past season he brought Sam Shepard and Joseph Chaikin’s poetic collaboration “Savage/Love” to the stage, combining movement and text to create a total theatre experience, which he hopes to repeat by combining realism and lyrical gesture in HUMAN NOISE. See what happens when a legendary wordsmith meets a genre-defying master of movement in HUMAN NOISE at Imago Theatre, September 21 through September 30. SPECIAL GUEST - CLOSING NIGHT Tess Gallagher, wife and partner of the late Raymond Carver (1938 - 1988), is a renowned American poet, short story writer, essayist and teacher. Ms Gallagher will be reading selections from her work on September 30 at Imago prior to the presentation of HUMAN NOISE, the event begins at 7:30. CAST Carol Triffle, Michael Streeter, Danielle Vermette, Nathan Wonder, Emily Welch, Bryan Smith, Sara Fay Goldman PRODUCTION Text by Raymond Carver; Direction and Choreography by Jerry Mouawad; Light Design Jon Farley; Stage Management Matt Gray TICKETS Tickets may be purchased by calling Imago at 503.231.9581, TicketsWest at 503.224.8499, online at TicketsWest.com, or at the door.
