Dancers Alejandra Iannone and Rick Ausland (Buckets and Tap Shoes) have long teamed up as Sparkle Theatricals to present innovative, delightful concoctions that transport viewers out of their comfort zones and into worlds of magic. Their newest production, The Room with Closets, is based on a book by Iannone’s father, A. Pablo Iannone, a professor of philosophy. The work journeys between the U.S. and Argentina, dream-like worlds and grim realities, and art and politics as myriad characters (a newlywed, a shepherd, a father, a physics student) navigate life, death, relationships, and their place in the world. Directed by Jon Ferguson (who has done award-winning work for Live Action Set, the Guthrie, and Open Eye Figure Theater), the work promises to be informed and enlightening.
