A follow up to 'Dancing Vs The Rat Experiment' and 'Vicious Dogs on Premise,' 'The Loon' features the company's signature style of extreme theatricality, rough-and-tumble dancing, and pop songs. The evening is inspired by a variety of sources, including 'Voices of the Loon' (an educational record released by the Audubon Society in 1980); the work of sociologist Erving Goffman; 'At Home,' Bill Bryson’s study of the history of domestic life; party games; and director/choreographer Dan Safer's pwn midlife crisis. Robert M. Johanson of the Nature Theater of Oklahoma serves as host of this unusual evening.
See it if you enjoy charming, soothing-voiced speakers, edgy interpretive dance, and science/philosophy mixed with a visual LSD trip.
Don't see it if you want a show with a clear cut, traditional plot, you dislike the experimental and alternative.
See it if you like being challenged intellectually, grappling with nature and humanity, and seeing some incredible choreography.
Don't see it if you're looking for a quiet, boring show.
