Innovative Imago Theatre to Perform “Zoo Zoo” at Susquehanna
Published on March 17, 2011
SELINSGROVE—Imago Theatre will present its hit production “Zoo Zoo” at Susquehanna University on March 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the Degenstein Center Theater. The performance is one of this year’s Artist Series events at Susquehanna.
Hailed by audiences and critics worldwide, “Zoo Zoo” features the best elements from two of Imago Theatre’s widely popular productions,“FROGZ” and “Biglittlethings.” In a completely wordless show, “Zoo Zoo” presents performers dressed as giant dinosaurs, firefly bug eyes, hungry anteaters, hitchhiking rabbits, introverted frogs, cantankerous polar bears, hippo insomniacs and tricky penguins. These fantastical characters mesmerize audiences with their comedy, illusion and physical finesse set to music.
Based in Portland, Ore., Imago Theatre is known for its masked theatrical productions. Appealing to a wide age range, the company presents innovative works that push boundaries of form, design and story. For over two decades, the company has produced pieces and toured internationally.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for senior citizens and $5 for non-Susquehanna students. They may be purchased by calling 570-372-ARTS or by visiting the Susquehanna University box office Monday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m., in the Charles B. Degenstein Campus Center.
The Susquehanna University Artist Series has been presenting internationally acclaimed artists of dance, music and theatre for the university and larger community since 1902. The Artist Series seeks to encourage an aesthetic appreciation of diverse cultures as well as the artistic heritage of humankind. Performances are often linked in ways that advance intellectual engagement through master classes, lectures or content of the artistic presentation.
