The Room with Closets
to May 26

The Room with Closets

You are a citizen of nowhere in a universe of closets. Journey between Argentina and the United States in this new, dance-theatre tale of a life divided. Experience joyous flights of fantasy and grim political reality. Arrive at a deeper understanding of life, love, human nature, and finding a place to belong when home won't let you stay.

Directed by Jon Ferguson

Choreography by Alejandra Iannone

Based on the award-winning book by A. Pablo Iannone

Created by local performers Alejandra Iannone and Rick Ausland, Sparkle Theatricals’ ongoing mission is to engage artists and audiences of diverse backgrounds in inventive, curious, and fun theatrical experiences. The company has been a fiscally-sponsored project of Springboard for the Arts since 2015.


This activity is made possible by Sparkle Theatricals' generous donors and by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. The Room with Closets is an adaptation of the award-winning book of the same name by A. Pablo Iannone. (Silver Medal for the Multicultural Adult Fiction category in the 2007 Independent Publisher Awards).
