When we last saw ShadowApe Theatre Company, they were discoursing on Oppenheimer and the atom bomb at Butler University almost a year ago. Finally, they have come back with another intriguing project, this one to be held at the Indianapolis Museum of Art as part of its Spring Equinox programming. DREAMS is a conglomeration of real dreams collected from people in the Indianapolis community and run through the collaborative ShadowApe ensemble process.
With ShadowApe's reputation, this should be a mixture of the surreal and the silly, done with impeccable style. The event is part of ShadowApe's exploration of dreams, which will culminate in a production at the Indiana Repertory Theatre in the summer of 2007. (And, Gorey Stories is coming back this July at Butler!)
The show will begin at Oldfield-Lilly House March 28, 6 p.m., and move into the Ravine Garden, so dress for the weather.
Admission is free, but reservations are strongly recommended; call 317-920-2649 or e-mail email@example.com. The IMA is located at 4000 Michigan Road.
Speaking of ...
ShadowApe member Robert K. Johansen stars in the one-man show Under the Lintel at the Indiana Repertory Theatre, on stage through May 6 on the Upperstage. John Green, noted Butler University Theatre chair, directs.
Johansen, playing an unassuming Dutch librarian, is content in his mild-mannered, quiet life. But then, he discovers a returned travel book that is 113 years overdue. The librarian sets off on a search that takes him around the world in search of answers.
