UMO Ensemble in Resistance Cabaret

July 12, Thursday – 7:00 pm at Joe Goode Annex
July 13, Friday – 9:00 pm at Joe Goode Annex
July 14, Saturday – 7:00 pm at Joe Goode Annex

UMO Resistance Cabaret asks the questions of “What does resistance look like? How do we resist? What is irresistible?” UMO and a stellar group of guest artists from both Seattle and San Francisco – featuring new buffoons, ladies in white, aerialists, musicians, singers, dancers, burlesque artists and more – will explore and explode these questions, with the vital help of the audience. Presidential addresses, suffrage speeches, found text and comic improvisation meld together in a show unlike anything else.

Artists include UMO Ensemble members Elizabeth Klob, Maria Glanz, Lyam White, Janet McAlpin and David Godsey, along with guest artists Lynelle Sjoberg, Jesse Belle Jones and more to be revealed… including some of San Francisco’s favorite musicians and performers.

About the Company:
In the past twenty years, UMO Ensemble has become known as one of the most innovative and compelling performance companies based in the Pacific Northwest. UMO Ensemble has made over 24 mind-blowingly gorgeous pieces of physical theatre that have been performed in theaters, at festivals, and in schools throughout the Northwest, the United States, Canada, and Europe. UMO recently premiered its newest work, FALLING AWAKE (a fugue state) at Seattle’s ACT Theatre Bullitt Cabaret space, after selling out a summer 2017 run of Resistance Cabaret here. UMO’s FAIL BETTER: Beckett Moves UMO debuted in ACT’s Lalie Theatre as part of the Seattle Beckett Festival and was met with rave reviews. It returned to ACT for a second run and performed at the Fools Fury Festival in San Francisco in 2016.

The company is committed to an Ensemble of performers who create and compose their own productions. The Ensemble’s creative process is rooted in physical theatre. Improvisations in movement, character, vocalizing, and writing are the basis for the creation and development of new works. For each piece there is a member of the Ensemble who serves as artistic director, holding the larger picture in mind.
