"La Belle: Lost in the World of the Automaton"
“A simple, elegant work that embraces the joy of imagination...”Variety
Imago Theatre presents La Belle, an imaginative love story set in the engine room of a 1920s steamship. Refined passenger Lady Rose and ship coal stoker reenact the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast in a whimsical, kinetic world of more than 100 astonishing automata, puppets and non-digital dazzling effects. As they tell the story, their own love blossoms. This marvelously inventive production conjures up a deliciously detailed and tactile wonderland filled with intricate gears, handmade machines and mischievous fairies run by both machines and puppeteers. www.artsandlectures.ucsb.edu
