Rogue Artists Ensemble visits One Colorado Courtyard for ArtNight Pasadena with its wicked and wonderful World of Shadows. Guests get treated to two shadow puppet stories based on the Edward Gorey tales “The Gashlycrumb Tinies” and “The Beastly Baby,” both accompanied with live music and the wild antics of the Rogue Shadow Queen and her minions. Then try your hand at your own shadow stories at The Shadow Jam DIY experience, where you can learn the ways of shadow play.
About Rogue Artists Ensemble: Rogue Artists Ensemble differs from other theater companies in that it's run by a collective of multi-disciplinary artists and designers rather than by actors, writers, or directors. By combining ancient storytelling techniques (music, dance, masks, puppetry) with modern technology (digital media, special effects, and theatrical illusions), the Rogues cultivate a unique style of live performance unlike any other.
Since 2002, the Rogues have created over a dozen original new works and collaborated with hundreds of artists and community members. In 2018, Rogue Artists Ensemble recently finished a successful remount of their macabre Pinocchio adaptation, Wood Boy Dog Fish, included as the summer show in Inaugural Season of the Garry Marshall Theatre. In October 2018, Rogue Artists premiered its site-specific, immersive piece, Señor Plummer’s Final Fiesta, a project commissioned by the City of West Hollywood to celebrate the namesake of Plummer Park. Rogue Artists Ensemble is committed to sharing the arts with the community and provides educational opportunities and workshops, and always offers discount tickets for all main stage work.
In 2018 the Rogues launched their first writers’ group and development lab, resulting in six new Hyper-theater plays. The Rogues are currently in development of several new works including an upcoming workshop of Cowboy Elektra a collision of old west mythos and the Elektra story, at the Getty Villa in January 2020.
