Imago Theatre’s shows have been described as Cirque Du Soleil-evoking acrobatics mixed with Mummenschanz-like mime, set in a unique, yet accessible, French-influenced, avant-garde playground.

Their family hit ZooZoo isa madcap revue of illusion, comedy and fun performed without words to an original score by Katie Griesar. Universalthemes are presented with a light touch, as animals take on human characteristics and inanimate objects spring to mischievous life. In the opening, winking eyes in the dark transform into a flock of birds. A hippo couple struggles for room on a tiny bed. Throughout the show, there are anteater waiters, edgy frogs, a huge paper bag that comes to life, dancing polar bears, playful rabbits, an acrobatic larva and competitive penguins.  Audiences from 3 to 103 go wild for ZooZoo!

Audience members are invited to stay after the show for a fun and engaging talk back/demonstration with the cast of ZooZoo.  Performers will answer questions, reveal secrets about how their characters are brought to life, and invite volunteers to help demonstrate techniques with mime and mask work.
