From our friends at Strathmore...

Strathmore Presents Imago Theatre's Frogz

‘Felliniesque mayhem’ comes to Strathmore with family-friendly gang of goofy, affable animals

Penguins play musical chairs, a cat gets trapped in a giant paper bag, huge frogs do calisthenics, and larger-than-life alligators playfully goad the audience when Imago Theatre’s Frogz comes to the Music Center at Strathmore on Sunday, February 22, 2015 at 4 p.m. Combining illusion, puppetry, and acrobatics, “Frogz is that rare theatrical event: family-friendly entertainment that is actually friendly to everyone in the family” (Boston Globe). Recommended for children 3 years and older. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (301) 581-5100 or visit

Frogz is the signature theatrical work of Portland-based Imago Theatre. The performance is based on the teachings of Jacques Lecoq, most famous for his approach to physical theatre, movement, and mime. The inventive staging and clever Felliniesque plots keep adults engaged while the breakneck physicality and goofy creatures keep children captivated. Frogz has enjoyed two extended stays at New York City’s New Victory Theater. The production has also toured China, Europe, and North America. The New York Times raved that Frogz is, “A mastery of mime, dance and acrobatics.”

About Imago Theatre:
Founded in 1979 by Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad, Imago Theatre’s original productions have toured internationally for over two decades. Imago’s signature works have appeared three times at New York’s acclaimed New Victory Theater. The universal nature of Imago’s world has won audience and critical acclaim in tours across Asia, Europe, Canada and the U.S. The company was awarded the New York Dance Film Award and Best Touring Production by Independent Reviewers of New England. Imago has been hailed by critics worldwide for their range of original work. Working out of an 18,000 square foot theatre laboratory in Portland, OR, Imago’s ensemble of actors, dancers, designers, fabricators, and musicians become alchemists seeking fresh perspectives of performance. The company has been honored for mask theatre pieces that appeal to a wide age range, as well as for innovative works that push the boundaries of form, design, and story. Imago Theatre’s methodology is based on the teachings of Jacques Lecoq (1921-1999). Triffle studied extensively with Lecoq, completing his exclusive pedagogical program. Drawing inspiration from Lecoq, Imago Theatre aims to place form and design at the forefront of theatre creation and infuses each production with an idiosyncratic physical energy.
