Quotes & Highlights

“Mr. Garbo and Ms. Santos transmit a steady stream of fun. For the audience, the experience is — what’s the word? — buoyant.” —The New York Times

Description

Costumes, props and set pieces expand, deflate and roll, in this funny, mesmerizing and colorful theatrical event.

The excitement begins when a ten-foot cylinder slithers onto the stage and implodes, and before long the entire audience is playing catch with gigantic inflatable props!

Suddenly, a globulating red cube takes on a life of its own, rolling, gliding, tumbling in synch to the music, right up to the edge of the stage. The audience gasps, and the big block teeters dramatically on the brink, quaking and bulging and changing shape.

Now, a lovely ballerina dances a can-can, but her skirt starts to grow longer and longer, becomming a ball gown, then a balloon engulfing her, finally spiriting her away.

Fast-paced, energetic, universally engaging and theatrically clever, Garbo and company mesmerize with imaginative imagery and artistic foolishness.
