Hand2Mouth (www.hand2mouththeatre.org) is a young-and-hungry ensemble theater company that is, paradoxically, the 'old guard' of the Portland (OR) experimental theater scene and has been making powerful new work for the last decade. The company returns to La MaMa January 10 to 20 with "Something's Got Ahold of My Heart," its newest creation, that wrestles with the yearning, euphoria and eviscerating tragedy of love. Weaving an energetic blend of 70's pastiche, romantic comedy excerpts, dance theater, testimonials, original music and aggressive physicality, it invites its audience into a deeply emotional experience.
Hand2Mouth is a permanent ensemble, led by Artistic Director Jonathan Walters, which has been working together since 2000 to create new and original performances. The company has created 19 original productions to-date and has been a "godfather" to Portland's now-burgeoning alternative theater scene. It was described by The Seattle Times as having "the kind of promise, fearlessness and energy that the American theater needs, and should encourage." In New York, the company has been presented by La MaMa, Ontological Hysteric Incubator and 59e59 Theatres.
