|Imagination In Motion|
•Teaches Students How to Work Together
•Fun & Dynamic
Welcome to “Imagination in Motion”, the brainchild of Paul Rajeckas & Neil Intraub, physical theater practitioners who have presented thousands of children’s performances over the past thirty years!
Rajeckas & Intraub are a modern day Laurel & Hardy. Their sense of play and resilient on-stage friendship created Imagination in Motion!
The program is an athletic physical theater performance that plays like a live cartoon – drawing on various theatrical styles, including mime, modern dance and vaudeville – but turns these traditions upside down by combining them with dialogue, audience participation and a delightfully original soundtrack.
Highlights include the creation of a mechanical man who runs amok while the audience cheers, a boy’s struggle to escape from within a video game, and a giant vacuum cleaner that sucks both performers offstage.
Classroom workshops and Residency Available
Grades K-5 & 6-12

|In The Shadow Of The Mountain - Luigi Del Bianco & Mount Rushmore|
Award-winning storyteller Lou Del Bianco portrays his grandfather and tells the story of Luigi Del Bianco and his unique contribution to the carving of our nation’s greatest memorial, Mount Rushmore.
Historic photos and documents in a PowerPoint presentation make the story come to life! Lou uses maps, timelines and primary sources to show an Italian immigrant’s journey to America and the fulfillment of his dream of being the Chief Carver on the Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
Lou’s humor and engaging personality entertains as well as educates, as he reveals little known facts about this well known monument. This program contains wonderful historical and cultural content presented in a personal and age appropriate manner, followed by a Q&A session.
