Betontanc and Umka.lv: Show Your Face!

 

“Incredibly emotional (live!) music and admiringly healthy irony toward their own story.” –Delfi

West Coast premiere

 

A virtuosic layering of physical theater, puppetry, dance and live music, this contemporary parable follows Little Branko, a faceless snowsuit transformed by puppeteers into a modern-day Everyman on a dark odyssey through the 20th century. The story takes Little Branko around the world, where he is confronted by other rootless figures—characters either too impetuous or not brave enough to be able to change the world. Show Your Face! is an award-winning collaboration by avant-garde Slovene physical-theater troupe Betontanc, Latvian object-theater masters Umka.lv, and the Slovene pop-electronic group Silence. 

Funded in part with generous support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Latvia, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia, and Judith O. and Robert E. Rubin.
