Event Notes


Hotel Vortruba

A surreal, wordless, physical comedy where finding shelter is not so simple. With otherworldly room service, broken lamps, creaky floorboards, and giant rats, a guest confronts a proprietor who has been hiding his true self. A gorgeous, hilarious, and daring theatrical experience where magic lingers in every shadow. Come check-in to Hotel Vortruba.

RAGMOP Theatre is a collaboration between Canadian clown and movement artist Nayana Fielkov, and USA circus artist Matthew "Poki" McCorkle. Using the mediums of clown, magic, mime, mask, puppetry, illusions, shadow projections, dance, live song, and circus arts, RAGMOP creates and performs original, compelling, thought-provoking, surrealist physical comedy. Their premier show Falling Awake was presented at ArtSpring in 2017.

With post-show talkback | all ages.

Thank you to Victoria Olchowecki for sponsoring this performance.
