The Doña Ana Arts Council proudly kicks off its 2015/2016 Variety Performance Series with the internationally acclaimed show the New York Times declared “a supremely theatrical spectacle,” Imago Theatre’s latest family hit, ZooZoo. Best described as Cirque Du Solei-evoking acrobatics mixed with mime, set in a unique, yet accessible avant-garde playground, ZooZoo will amaze and enchant at the Rio Grande Theatre, Sunday, October 25, 2015.
ZooZoo is comprised of a series of short works performed without words and lasting in length from four to seven minutes, creating a madcap revue of illusion, comedy and fun. Through the refined use of “mask theater,” ZooZoo’s universal themes are presented with a light touch, as animals take on human characteristics and inanimate objects spring to mischievous life. A cast of five plays a multitude of characters ranging from anteater waiters, edgy frogs, a huge paper bag that comes to life, dancing polar bears, crazy cats, an acrobatic larva and competitive penguins in a wildly original show that appeals to ages 4 to 104 all around the world.
ZooZoo tickets are on sale now through October 16 as part of a $125 Variety Series season package.
