Description

IMAGO THEATER Biography Since 1979, Imago has been creating transformative theater that crosses boundaries traditionally associated with language, age and the physical realm. None other than the New York Times said of their work: “Theater like this opens the eyes to the possibilities of exploration in the vast realm of imagination.” The company’s trademark style – which combines masks, dance and slapstick with witty social commentary on the human condition – is the direct result of over thirty years of study, development, and practice. Not easily pigeon-holed, Imago has repeatedly proven unique in its ability to create both popular family-oriented fare as highly regarded as its critically acclaimed (and ambitious) productions for adults. Imago has toured globally for over three decades, with numerous multi-national visits to Asia and Europe. Two of the company’s most lauded production, FROGZ and ZooZoo, have played at Broadway’s esteemed New Victory Theatre while another, No Exit, was revived at Harvard’s American Repertory Theatre and the Hartford Stage Company. Working out of a large 18,000 square foot theatre laboratory in Portland, Oregon, under the artistic direction of Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad, Imago’s ensemble of actors, dancers, designers, fabricators and musicians become alchemists seeking fresh perspectives of performance. The company has been honored for mask theatre pieces which have appealed to a wide age range, and for innovative works that push the boundaries of form, design and story. With its ongoing mission to create theater that transcends language, age, and gravity (and other laws of the real world), Imago has repeatedly entertained multicultural, multigenerational audiences with its inventively mind-bending productions. While the company’s approach has long been grounded in the rigorously physical techniques of the late Jacques Lecoq – an influential theater theoretician for whom Imago co-founder Carol Triffle served as assistant --- Imago has developed a distinctly theatrical approach all its own, one that’s equal parts dance, design, circus, music, text, and illusion. Jerry Mouawad’s neo-vaudevillian treatment of Sartre’s existentialist masterpiece No Exit was hailed for its “skin-tingling tension” (Boston Globe) while Triffle’s The Dinner was cited as “the most original and inspired theater you'll see” (The Oregonian).

IMAGO THEATRE presents the return of FROGZ by Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad FROGZ is Imago Theatre’s signature work. It has been described as Cirque Du Soleil-evoking acrobatics mixed with Mummenschanz-like mime, set in a unique –yet accessible- French-influenced avant-garde playground. It is an unforgettable experience for children and adults alike and has been seen on stage and television by over a million people. The ingenious masks, mesmerizing movement, outlandish costumes, and original music score create a carnival of the absurd, presenting universal themes with a light touch, as animals take on human characteristics and inanimate objects, like orbs and slinkys, engage in silly humanistic movements. FROGZ is penguins playing musical chairs, a cat trapped in a giant paper bag, orbs running wild through the audience, and a madcap revue of illusion, comedy and fun that has inspired audiences worldwide. FROGZ has been performed in China, Europe and at some of North America’s most revered festivals.

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.

Imago Theatre’s The Reunion, Six Characters in Search of the Punch John, her husband, is continually ignored. Delores, his wife, tells all she meets that she’s dying. The soon-to-be-gone and the invisible, Carol Triffle’s motifs, are lightly cloaked in this existential comedy of bad manners at a high school reunion. Triffle’s universe questions, comments, and insults with fire-words skewering each character. All are alone and desperate for companionship yet bound by their aloneness. Live music jolts the absurdity to bubbly heights and side tracks serious moments into comedic ditches. The Reunion can’t be codified and flies like a wild aircraft ricocheting off muddy memories, regrets and the uncertainty of hope. Delores (Danielle Vermette) is an enthusiastic but reluctant pilot of her life. On her one and last night’s voyage, Delores refuses to touch down. Nonetheless, all is good when she lands smoothly, easily and unharmed (almost). The Reunion plays June 9 through June 24 at Imago Theatre, 17 SE 8th Avenue, Fridays and Saturdays @ 7:30 and one Sunday performance at 2pm on June 18. Tickets are $10-$20 pay what you will and can be

Triffle’s universe questions, comments, and insults with fire-words skewering each character. All are alone and desperate for companionship yet bound by their aloneness. Live music jolts the absurdity to bubbly heights and side tracks serious moments into comedic ditches. The Reunion can’t be codified and flies like a wild aircraft ricocheting off muddy memories, regrets and the uncertainty of hope. Delores (Danielle Vermette) is an enthusiastic but reluctant pilot of her life. On her one and last night’s voyage, Delores refuses to touch down. Nonetheless, all is good when she lands smoothly, easily and unharmed (almost). The Reunion plays June 9 through June 24 at Imago Theatre, 17 SE 8th Avenue, Fridays and Saturdays @ 7:30 and one Sunday performance at 2pm on June 18. Tickets are $10-$20 pay what you will and can be

Imago Theatre’s The Reunion, Six Characters in Search of the Punch John, her husband, is continually ignored. Delores, his wife, tells all she meets that she’s dying. The soon-to-be-gone and the invisible, Carol Triffle’s motifs, are lightly cloaked in this existential comedy of bad manners at a high school reunion. Triffle’s universe questions, comments, and insults with fire-words skewering each character. All are alone and desperate for companionship yet bound by their aloneness.
