Circus Minimus

The One-Man Circus-in-a-Suitcase delights and inspires assembly audiences to practice compassion and follow their dreams. An entire cast of circus performers emerge from a small suitcase but the most important characters come from the audience, as chosen members become part of the action. Each show is a dialogue between the audience and the characters, a lighthearted col­laboration that allows the entire school to run away and join the circus and still be back in time for lunch. The show comes with a curriculum guide for teachers to integrate the circus back into the classroom. Kevin O'Keefe; Grades K-8; $800/$1300

Imagination in Motion

Rajeckas & Intraub are a modern day Laurel & Hardy. Their sense of play and resilient on-stage friendship created "Imagination in Motion" – an athletic physical theater performance that plays like a live cartoon – drawing on various theatrical styles, including mime, modern dance and vaudeville – but turns these traditions upside down by combining them with dialogue, audience participation and a delightfully original soundtrack.  The artists demystify the creative process by illustrating that the skills necessary to create their dynamic performance are the same skills students utilize in learning situations - i.e.: concentration, cooperation and commitment (3Cs). Physicalizing the 3Cs allows the students to 'see' these life skills in a new, exciting way. Performance highlights include a boy’s struggle to escape from within a video game, and a giant vacuum cleaner that sucks both performers offstage. Rajeckas & Intraub; Grades K-12; $800/$1300

The Mask Messenger 

The Mask Messenger is a solo show that utilizes physical comedy, quick-change artistry and masked transformations in a series of vignettes that range from comic to tender to bizarre. Half-masked characters speak; full-masked characters remain silent while speaking volumes with body language often affecting audiences viscerally in ways that go straight to the heart and sneak up on the brain. Masks are worn on other parts of the body, creating illusions that The New York Times says, "tickle some sort of primal funny bone." Students learn about masks used in cultures worldwide while addressing the concept of the 'masks' we wear daily: body language, jewelry, piercing, tattoos, hairstyles, hats and fashion. Formerly produced by Faustwork, now, proudly presented by Lattawork! Tim Latta; Grades K-12; $800/$1300
