Ohio Think Tank: “Lizardbrain”.
My favorite theater company is in from Philadelphia with a show that sounds very very good! Pig Iron is intelligent, funny, and moving physical theater. The original company members met in Paris while attending the Jacques Lecoq School, a wonderful center for “gesture and movement” training. You might have already seen their work last January, when they performed at The Brick together with singer/musician Cynthia Hopkins in the 365 days/365 plays series organized by The Public- it was a great interpretation of one of Suzan Lori-Parks‘ plays.
I highly recommend seeing their work. Here is more information:
