Doodle POP, A Nonverbal Performance Adventure for the Whole Family, Comes to The Alden

The Alden in McLean is presenting a single performance of the internationally acclaimed nonverbal show, Doodle Pop, at 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 23. Created by BRUSH Theatre of South Korea, this family friendly show is appropriate for all ages. Tickets are $15, $10 for McLean Community Center (MCC) tax district residents. The Alden is located inside MCC at 1234 Ingleside Ave.

A mischievous duo starts to doodle… and ends up creating a whole imaginative world! They invite the audience along on their sea adventure with a tiny little turtle. What will happen as we follow their vivid drawings into this beautiful watery world, and will they return the turtle to the sea safely? Doodle POP is a touching and playful nonverbal show that uses live musicians to perform the accompanying score and sound effects. Using stunning interactive animation projections and live whiteboard drawings, they create an abundance of theatrical imagination for all.

Doodle POP has been performed at festivals all over the world. It was awarded the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018 Asian Arts Award for Best Comedy and was jury selected for a full showcase at IPAY 2020. This tour of Doodle Pop received grant funding from Center Stage Korea, Korea Arts Management Service and the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

“…inventive and thrilling and completely fantastical. Natural, mythical and comical creatures morph into each other with as little as a flick of a hand or a wave of a pen… as awe-inspiring for the adults as it is for children.” — Exeunt Magazine
