So how did it turn out? The performance will have you at sex reversal. The story goes a little something like this: Wife decides to be a man; for revenge, husband decides to be a woman and, obviously, pops out 40,049 babies. It’s just your run-of-the-mill family entertainment.
Inspired by Guillaume Apollinaire’s Les mamelles de Tíresias, Proliferation embraces the surreal movement that reigned in Paris during the early 20th century, per its PIFA involvement, without alienating less serious theater-goers.
Proliferation of the Imagination combines outrageous stories, folk-like music, modern ballet, hilarious banter and a good ol’ fashioned rapping baby. Need we say more?
