“ZooZoo” for all ages at Hylton Arts Center


Three frogs from ZooZoo

Little wigglers will probably giggle and stay glued to their seats when you take them to see “ZooZoo” at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas on Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 2 p.m. Using no dialogue, a talented cast plays mischievous animals and inanimate objects that adopt human characteristics. Each take lasts about four to seven minutes.

“ZooZoo” characters include penguins playing musical chairs, a cat trapped in a giant paper bag, hippos with insomnia, anteaters as waiters, edgy frogs, dancing polar bears, playful rabbits, an acrobatic larva and much more-all contributing to a fresh and innovative perspective on performance art for audiences of all ages. It is part of the Hylton Family Series.

ZooZoo is a creation of Imago Theatre, from Portland, OR. Imago strives to put form and design at the heart of theater creation, while incorporating a distinctive physical energy and stunning masks and disguises into each production, according to :  Jill Graziano Laiacona, director of public relations for the Hylton Center.
