Theatre Gigante opens its 26th Season with two rollicking and wacky theater pieces created by graduates of the Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris: David Gaines, who Gigante audiences will remember for his fabulous one-man show 7 (x1) Samurai, which he performed for Gigante in 2009, and Gigante regular Malcolm Tulip, who has entertained Milwaukee audiences in quite a few Gigante shows.

Continuing our 25th Anniversary Season, Theatre Gigante is very excited to present the regional premiere of DUST, a stimulating, provocative play by one of Hungary’s leading contemporary writers!
Gigante Artistic Directors Isabelle and Mark first saw György Spiró’s DUST in Ljubljana, Slovenia and fell in love with the play. It is clever, provocative, and loaded with issues of today’s world, through the eyes of a couple struggling to survive.
Isabelle and Gigante regular, John Kishline, play the couple, struggling to stay afloat, who – one lucky day – are given an opportunity to alter their fate forever.
Handled with a sense of humor and deep understanding, DUST touches the heart and inspires the mind!
Mark directs, with scenic design by Rick Graham and lighting by Nathan Booth.
