Imago Theatre Buckman (Portland)
This is an in-person event
"A metaphysical jaunt from earth to the outer limits of the soul.
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. " (Promo Copy)
