Imago

About the Artist

Imago’s school assembly, Mask Works, is both an educational and fun show of masked creatures. Imago’s family friendly shows, FROGZ, Biglittlethings and ZooZoo, tour internationally, including Broadway.

Teaching Philosophy

During their performances, Imago invites children to question and explore universal qualities of humanity through comedy and physical expression. Through participation, they learn about the creative process.

“It’s always a treat to see Imago! These guys make it fun, humorous, suspenseful... The rapport was great between the audience and performers.” --Teacher, PPS

It’s a whimsical, fantastical zoo! Through a blend of illusion, masks and mime, Imago challenges our notion of what we think to be true during this presentation of pieces from its internationally acclaimed program FROGZ. Working onstage and in the audience, three performers skillfully depict both real and other-worldly entities as volunteers participate in a mask improvisation. This fun and creative performance enriches children’s lives by giving them an opportunity to experience the power of mask theater. The program closes with a question-and-answer session where students continue to discover the mystery and illusion of masks and how they have been used in various cultures throughout time. Imago offers teacher study guides that can be used before and after a performance.
