Doug Berky Theatre

Doug Berky has been presenting theatre internationally to audiences of all ages since 1983. Doug offers a variety of engaging performances in a style that reflects the commedia dellíarte, vaudeville, mask and mime theatre, and influences such as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Carol Burnette, Red Skelton, Marcel Marceau and Tony Montanaro. Each performance hopes to entertain, teach, inspire, and to create space for contemplation. Performances presently being offered include No Show, a structured improvisation with audience interaction; Gems: World Wisdom Stories filled with wisdom passed down to us from many peoples around the world; Foibles, Fables, and Other Imaskinations, comprised of some of humanityís greatest wisdom; Foolosophies, a collection of dramatic and comic reflections; Kairos, an impressionist telling of the story of Jesus of Nazareth; and The Soldiers Tale by Igor Stravinsky, a Faust-like tale in which a soldier eventually looses his soul to the Devil. In addition to performances Doug offers workshops, residencies, and other opportunities for schools, colleges and professional theatre companies. Doug is represented by Loyd Artists.
