"Prepare to be dazzled and delighted by wild, circus-inspired imagination." (Georgia Straight) Dive into the surreal world of a curious writer whose uncontrollable imagination overtakes her life and permanently warps reality. Brought to life through a hilarious theatrical circus fusion: part magic, unexpected puppetry, artistic juggling, and acrobatic dance.
"Figmentally" is written for adults, but kids love it. Consider this show truly all ages!
Drea Lusion and Eric Parthum, from Oakland (CA) and the Lookout Arts Quarry (WA), are two touring artists who uniquely blend new and old world vaudevillian antics with theater and circus. They construct a new universe of laughter and magic for their audiences—using circus, dance, improv comedy, and physical theatre that entices audience participation and wonder.
Drea Lusion was born at the crossroads of dance, mime, clown, and puppetry. She is a graduate of San Francisco Clown Conservatory, and Clown through Mask, Vancouver, BC (David MacMurray Smith). She also trains in numerous dance disciplines—particularly ballet and turfing.
Eric Parthum is skilled in diverse artistic expressions—he is an adept juggler, object manipulator, visual artist, dancer, and circus arts teacher. Curiosity propels him through evolving explorations of performance possibilities (and impossibilities), while tinkering with the tickings of contraptions that surround us. Also, he designed Figmentally's soundscape.
This is the latest in a monthly series of free events in collaboration with the Friends for the Public Library.
