What Does Red Do on Thursday at Imagination State

See an artist at work. Watch as German artist Joachim Torbahn uses paint and a giant canvas on stage to tell the story of Little Red who takes a journey around his neighborhood. Underscored with classical music, this 40 min. silent theatre piece is riveting to watch as the artist brings his characters and places to life with the simple stroke of a paintbrush. Bring your whole family (good for all ages) and watch as art comes alive and the artist paints you a play!

Children are able to visit the artist on stage after the show to see how the magic is done!

There will be an ASL interpreter on Saturday, Nov. 12th at 11:45 AM.

However, this show is highly accessible even without interpretation; there is an extremely small amount of text in the piece, and it is fully supported visually.


Enjoyed by ages 3 and up.

Tickets: $10 per person; $5 lap seat for children under 12 months. Tickets and Schedule.
