Edward Hopper’s American Dream Comes to Life

At the diner, a busboy juggles plates and a waitress breaks out in a zany dream dance, while the owner of the place flirts with the yodeling good-for-nuthin’ fix-it man of her heart.  Meet the Nighthawks locals, whose lives and longings are the stuff American dreams are made of.

Hopper’s paintings collide with the playful inventiveness of Push Leg’s ensemble, fusing dance, theatre, and clown in an original performance that is both intimate and epic.

Workshopped July – August 2012
