FLUSH, 9pm Wednesday, Oct. 28: FLUSH, 8pm Czech physical theater has been described as a celebration of human experience through visual poetry. Movement, neo-classic clowning & mime, puppetry and music all inform the story, playing a vital narrative role in addition to the spoken word. Wildly inspirational about life and living, Czech physical theater often feels like a good meal: delicious, dreamy and satisfying. One wants to return to the table. It also has a long history of image driven adventures into the surreal, often motivated by the powerful social/political forces of the 20th century. The absurd speaks the truth. Performers such as Bill Irwin and Geoff Hoyle have drawn from the tradition of Czech physical theater.
