Event Details

On stage, as in life, mother-daughter relationships can be … unpredictable? complicated? epic? Take your pick. But the generational divide between the two women in Imago’s latest, Lumen Odyssey, takes this conflict to fantastical extremes. How else to describe a world in which the matriarch, dressed in 19th-century finery, fashions herself as the Mother of the Universe? In Jerry Mouawad’s metaphysical sci-fi adventure Lumen Odyssey, a woman (Carol Triffle) of astronomical hubris reunites with her down-to-earth daughter (Brenan Dwyer) to trip the light fantastic from galaxy to galaxy and heartbreak to heartache. Theirs is a life-changing journey that starts in a city center and ends at the edge of the universe; an eternal conflict communicated in hushed tones, primal screams, and seriocomic jests; a mad race to a diabolical future by way of an invisible subway that speeds along at 186,000 miles per second. Familial conflict has never been so phantasmagorical, so paradoxical, so tragically fun.
