Oct. 26-Nov. 17
Join Prism Movement Theater as they adapt one of English language's greatest plays, all without uttering a single word. LEAR is a beautiful and moving work of dance theater that focuses on the relationship between King Lear and his daughters.
When King Lear is betrayed by his corrupted daughters Regan and Goneril, his sanity is sent into a tailspin, forcing his only faithful daughter Cordelia to take up the mantle and fight for her father's dignity and the fate of the kingdom.

Gog and Magog: Two Clowns Trapped in Hell
Written by Jeffrey Colengelo and Hope Endrenyi
February 24 - March 11, 2018
Gog and Magog are two clowns trapped in hell’s kitchen and their only hope of escape is cooking the perfect meal for God. Though Gog and Magog are best friends, they are terrible cooks. Their friendship is tested along with their culinary skills in this wordless comedy in the tradition of Mump and Smoot and the Three Stooges. Cara Mía Theatre and Prism Movement Theatre reunite for another co-production that will be sure to surprise and fill your bellies with laughter.

April 7-23, 2018
In this darkly comedic, wordless take on The Tempest, Prism Movement Theater follows a lonely, stranded and shipwrecked Prospero as he sorts through his past betrayals, present predicament, and future revenge. Through the use of magic and puppetry, Prospero gives audiences a glimpse into the mind of one of Shakespeare's greatest characters.
