Riot Act: The Bogeyman

Thursday June 17 - Saturday June 19

Posted // June 17,2010 - Who am I? Where did I come from? And where am I going?” These questions make up the big triumvirate of human queries. For their part, Jackson Hole, Wyo.-based physical theater group Riot Act ventures a bit of a rewrite. Their newest production, The Bogeyman, alternatively dares to ask, “What are we looking for? What are we afraid of? And is there beer involved?”

A bricolage of sorts, The Bogeyman is a collaboration between a group of actors, dancers, choreographers and playwrights that relies on a unique use (and misuse, for that matter) of the body to tell a story in the tradition of Japanese Butoh or mime—yet more irreverent. Riot Act has a no-holds-barred attitude to developing a production, and in this case it will take you on a nostalgic romp through a hero’s love quest involving such disparate parts of our culture as, according to the company, “PBR Tall Boys, river rocks and Twizzlers.”

Riot Act: The Bogeyman @ Sugar Space for the Arts, 616 Wilmington Ave. (2190 South), 888-300-7898, June 17-19, 8 p.m.,
