  Fables Du Theatre
             Sex.  Death.  Clown.

     Opening Friday, August 15th, 2008

(July 13, 2008)  Unknown Theater is  thrilled to round out its third season the way it began, with a wild collaboration.  Fables du Theatre marks the return of Immanence Theatre Artists to the Los Angeles theater landscape.  Written by Brenda Varda (founding member, Unknown Theater) and Marva Lewis (artistic director, Immanence Theatre Artists), this new plays performs at Unknown Theater August 15th – September 27th.  Back at the helm, Chris Covics directs this ensemble of both Unknown and Immanence.

Vampires, soldiers, spoiled brats, and clowns collide in a feast of entertainment for the senses.  Delight in the wonder that unfolds as these two companies pull out all the stops to bring you, Fables Du Theatre, a fantastic reinvention of old French fables to tell modern tales of murder, (delusion, madness, absurdity), and love.  French is now acceptable again since they are so much more like us.,and with a touch of “de la Fontaine” and a lot of sex, the cast of 20+ weave a magical night of sex, death, and clowns.     


Known for their adventuresome explorations of architecture, satires of social construction, and guerilla theatre tactics, Immanence Theatre artists this time brings their signature expression of physicality and fantasy onto the Unknown Stage.  For the past seven years, Marva Lewis and company have challenged preconceptions of performance and space, with such works as Hamlet at City Hall,  Bridge Hostages, and Griffith Park Gryffns . Their recent legal issues notwithstanding, Immanence strives to make art through and with difficult conditions.


Nearly three years ago Unknown Theater opened its doors with the simple dream of bringing people together to appreciate one another and to search for meaning together. In that short amount of time, Unknown Theater has made an indelible mark on the Los Angeles landscape as a dynamic and critically acclaimed nexus of challenging theater, inspiring dance, live music, performance art, comedy and good times.
