Here & Now

Visit Joe’s Movement Emporium tonight (1/17) through Sunday (1/19) for Happenstance Theater’s new work Juxtapose, a series of vignettes inspired by collage artist Joseph Cornell. This non-linear journey will take audiences deeper into their storytelling imaginations with incredible puppetry, physical theater, object manipulation, theatrical clown and vintage spectacle. Get tickets at this link to shows tonight at 8 p.m., tomorrow at 2 p.m./8 p.m. or Sunday at 2 p.m.

Next Friday (1/24) through Sunday (1/26), check out Casa de la Luna in Petworth for their production of ‘Go,’ a wordless story performed by Pablo Guillén and Rodin Ruíztwo people who casually meet on stage to transform poetry into movement, trying to decipher whether this ‘accidental’ encounter was in fact part of some grander fate. This performance is ‘in Spanish only,’ but appears to be physical theater requiring no translation for non-Spanish speakers. Get tickets at this link.
