From fall of 2016 until summer of 2017 we'll be creating, experimenting, re-working, developing & performing the following projects:
Our 2012 original piece re-written, re-worked, and re-REALized. REAL is 6 actors, 20 characters, 1 office and 30 years of failed immigration policy. His Fairy, Liberty, knows of Pinocchio’s wish to become a real boy but JUSTICE, her pet snail, JUSTICE, moves very slowly. Inspired by C. Collodi's Pinocchio, D.A.C.A. and the D.R.E.A.M. Act. Performed in Spanish and English.
September 22, 23, 24, 29, 30 October 1, 6, 7, 8 @ 8pm
This piece will also travel to city schools as part of our ION Project, theater residencies in local schools designed to encourage creative freedom, to activate the individual voice, and to discover the power of collaboration.
Experiment #1: The 16th
The 16th heads to Z Space in San Francisco this October for continued development. We're excited to include colleagues in the city as we dive back into the the world of The 16th.
Experiment #2: The Magic Circle Cycle (working title)
A new collaboration with musician and composer Kalei Yamanoha (Oddjob Ensemble). Performances Dec. 2-31.
Experiment #3: THERE WILL BE A SHOW TONIGHT
In THERE WILL BE A SHOW TONIGHT (working title) a small theater company is held hostage by a story they never intended to tell. The piece will be developed and created over the course of the year. Work-in-progress showings will happen at the Imaginists’ base in Santa Rosa in March 2017.
