Idylls Showcase

Mindscapes – whether the inner worlds of killers or saints, soldiers or sorceresses, Antigone, Caliban, a dancer stretching her legs, or a mother feeling her estranged daughter’s labor pains – spill into the theatrical space as actor and audience collaborate to create “a shared imagining” more vivid than any stage set.  D.C.-based actors perform the technique of the “idyll,” character-driven poetic monologue as theater, with selections from poet and playwright Magus Magnus’ Idylls for a Bare Stage.
