Based on the Caldecott-winning book, Zen Shorts follows three siblings as they navigate the pressures of school, friendship, and the struggles of growing up. But everything changes once a Zen master panda named Stillwater moves into their neighborhood and shares three simple Zen tales that illuminate their world. Using Hyper-theatrical puppet performances, magical video projections, and original songs, Zen Shorts is an adventure filled with imagination, love, and panda philosophy.

Set against the backdrop of 1869 California when the railroad was on the verge of reaching the west coast, Cowboy Elektra takes place in HURDY-GURDY HOUSE, where Elektra’s investigation of her father’s death leads to a tragic revenge plot against her mother. A fusion of Greek theater, Old West mythos, spaghetti and pulp westerns, and technology-fueled media integration. Cowboy Elektra is written by award-winning playwright Meghan Brown, directed by Rogue Artists Ensemble Artistic Director Sean T. Cawelti, and features original songs by The Dustbowl Revival.

Señor Plummer’s Final Fiesta
A site-specific interactive theater experience in West Hollywood’s Plummer Park, Señor Plummer’s Final Fiesta celebrates, illuminates, and magnifies the life of Eugene Plummer, the original resident of Hollywood. Told through a patchwork of tall-tales, large-scale puppets, masks, and music, Rogue Artists Ensemble electrifies Señor Plummer’s whimsical tales of early Los Angeles in a memory map of wild west duals, pirates, land-grabbing, shark-riding, epic court battles, and, of course, fiestas. Armed with only a treasure map of Señor Plummer’s mind, the adventures you’ll encounter are not always friendly, not always logical, but always exist in the vibrant, shifting ground for dreamers that is Los Angeles. This summer, the presentation will be an active workshop sketch of the piece, planned for a full production in 2018.

Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin
A voice calls out through the darkness, drowning us in echoes of wells and engines and graveyards, in tangles of hair and snow, in sharp reflections of our darkest and most human moments. Kaidan Project: Walls Grow Thin is a multi-sensory, site specific experience refracting ancient Japanese ghost stories through a modern, multi-cultural lens, revealing the noise of our histories and the silences that haunt us. A small group enters a room alone, guided by a voice, each room a different story – will you complete the ritual?
