In this seductive satire, Indiana Jones and his comely companion, Shortround, find themselves trapped in a remote village where a sacred statue has been stolen. The villagers refuse to work, eat or wear clothes until their idol is returned. So Dr. Jones and Shorty agree to retrieve it from the High Priestess Pincha Nippol and her creepy cohort Mola Ram. The villagers warn that Pincha Nippol may be kidnapping people, forcing them to bump and grind to power her evil rituals. Check out Gorilla Tango Theatre's titillating take on the famous archaeological adventurer to find out if she can save the village -- and learn just what she plans on doing with that whip. Learn More

This is an entertaining - non-linear, 85 minute show. The cast is very good. The subject matter, me not being all that familiar with Bob Rauschenberg, was curious. A series of seemingly connectected, random vignettes make up show. Some are lighthearted and funny. Some are serious and sad. Some are just odd. But I found it very entertaining regardlesss. Don't go looking for the standard, linear intro - middle - conclusion story arc. There isn't one.
“I work in the gap between life and art.” --Robert Rauschenberg
This boldly entertaining performance piece chronicles the adventures of a wild collection of characters including a trucker, a homeless man, and a couple working through the difficulties of romance. Their stories are told in a variety of styles and forms, ranging from melodrama to stand-up routine, and the action is punctuated by a roller-skating Mistress of Ceremonies and plenty of dance breaks. It's a road trip through the American landscape in a play made as one of America's greatest artists, Robert Rauschenberg, might have conceived it if he had been a playwright instead of a painter.
