Using found text, music, stylized physicality, and an abundance of pop culture references, THEY DO NOT MOVE winds its way through an imagined American future in which a disorganized band of wanderers are hunted by monarchist forces. Their only defense? An expressionist cavalcade of song and dance. There will be a beauty pageant. There will be a sitcom. There will be conversion therapy. Horror movies, cancel culture, and Texas law feature prominently in this oddly moving, frenetically funny love letter to our city, a devised dance-theatre piece that could only come from the mind of Brian Jucha. Jucha previously collaborated with IBP and The Catastrophic Theatre to create Last Rites (1997), We Have Some Planes (2002), and Toast (2019). In its cover story, American Theatre magazine called We Have Some Planes “darkly hilarious and compelling… like the best of remembered dreams.” THEY DO NOT MOVE runs November 18-December 10, 2022, at the Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston (MATCH).
