The Rube Goldberg Variations

Presented by Attack Theatre

Thu-Sun, April 25-28


In a neighborly feud, a small gesture adds fuel to the fire: a parking chair, a noise complaint, a sign placed just too close. As two neighbors face off over their apparent differences, notions of identity clash until a whimsical chain of events reminds them that getting along is easier than it seems. Inspiration drawn from the uncanny world of cartoonist, Rube Goldberg merges with J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, as musical and choreographic vignettes create an ingeniously complicated machine that reveals the simplicity of human connection.

Featuring live musical accompaniment by pianist, Nathan Carterette, and original recorded music by Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer, this world premiere juxtaposes the classical with the contemporary, bridging two worlds through variations that divide and ultimately unite.
