The Catamounts are pleased to announce our 2017 – 2018 season, celebrating lost love, losing inhibition, and getting lost in the woods. Our seventh season will feature our first world-premiere, immersive work, created in collaboration with Control Group Productions.
From September 9-30, 2017, we will present the regional premiere of You On the Moors Now by Jaclyn Backhaus at the Dairy Arts Center, directed by Artistic Director Amanda Berg Wilson.
This wild, smart, timely feminist romp sets heroines from the 19th-century novels of Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters in a mythical place of Moors. When our heroines receive proposals of marriage, they decide to escape, and their rejection causes the men to wage war on the women.
On October 28 and 29, 2017, we will team up again with Firehouse Art Center to offer a second year of FEED: Los Muertos. Los Muertos will use the Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos as inspiration for an evening which celebrates the ways in which we keep those we have lost alive.
On February 9, 10, and 11, we will present our winter FEED, entitled FEED: Love. Feed: Love will explore the tension between youthful ideals and the more hard-won truths of adulthood.
From May 25 – June 17, 2018, fulfilling the part of our mission statement which states that “we believe in the constant reinvention of artistic forms,” we will present our first immersive theatre piece, Rausch, in collaboration with Control Group Productions. Rausch will be co-directed by The Catamounts’ Artistic Director Amanda Berg Wilson and Control Group Production Artistic Director Patrick Mueller, fresh off their collaboration as director and choreographer of the Denver Center’s immersive production of The Wild Party.
Rausch will take audiences literally into the woods, in search of the mystery and myth of the wilderness. Integrating ideas from folk stories of diverse cultures with natural ecology, high school keggers, and artifacts of local history, this piece will lead the audience through an archetypal journey with the wild. (Rausch is the German concept of being transported – by intoxication, ecstasy, or magic.)
The Catamounts are a Boulder-based theatre company dedicated to creating theatre for the adventurous palate. In six years, we have presented the regional premieres of 13 boundary-pushing works, and produced 19 installments of our original FEED series, which integrates food, libations, and performance in a multi-course evening.
