Artistic Director Annie Loui and the Counter-Balance Theater company will blend movement and theater in an adaptation of Pär Lagerkvist's Nobel Prize-winning novel, The Dwarf. |
In the CounterBalance style of devised physical theater, six actors portray myriad characters, including animals, architecture and furniture.
The story, renowned for its provocative examination of human nature, features Piccolino, the resident dwarf of a great Renaissance Prince, who shares his journal with the audience. The moral contradiction of the "rebirth of civilization" are observed and evaluated by the Dwarf, and chaos ensues when he finally decides to take action.
This event will take place at the Claire Trevor Theatre.
We hope to see you at this thrilling production.
