Fans of Raymond Carver, one of the 20th century's most vital short story writers, will be delighted to find four of his works staged in HUMAN NOISE, directed and choreographed by Imago Theatre’s Jerry Mouawad. The stories include “Gazebo,” “A Serious Talk,” “Neighbors,” and the poem “Torture.” All pieces explore the intimate and sometimes unusual struggles and passions of male female relationships. Carver's precise and explosively simple narratives expose veins of Northwest Americans. He was born in Clatskanie, Oregon and spent most of his time on the west coast. He crafted stories rife with tension, history and an impending sense of conflict to come. See what happens when a legendary wordsmith meets a genre-defying master of movement in HUMAN NOISE at Imago Theatre, September 21-30.
