Circus Minimus

The One-Man Circus-in-a-Suitcase delights and inspires assembly audiences to practice compassion and follow their dreams. An entire cast of circus performers emerge from a small suitcase but the most important characters come from the audience, as chosen members become part of the action. Each show is a dialogue between the audience and the characters, a lighthearted col­laboration that allows the entire school to run away and join the circus and still be back in time for lunch. The show comes with a curriculum guide for teachers to integrate the circus back into the classroom. Kevin O'Keefe; Grades K-8; $800/$1300

Imagination in Motion

Rajeckas & Intraub are a modern day Laurel & Hardy. Their sense of play and resilient on-stage friendship created "Imagination-in-Motion" – an athletic physical theater performance that plays like a live cartoon – drawing on various theatrical styles, including mime, modern dance and vaudeville – but turns these traditions upside down by combining them with dialogue, audience participation and a delightfully original soundtrack.  The artists demystify the creative process by illustrating that the skills necessary to create their dynamic performance are the same skills students utilize in learning situations - i.e.: concentration, cooperation and commitment (3Cs). Physicalizing the 3Cs allows the students to 'see' these life skills in a new, exciting way. Performance highlights include a boy’s struggle to escape from within a video game, and a giant vacuum cleaner that sucks both performers offstage. Rajeckas & Intraub; Grades K-12; $800/$1300
