Horse Head presents ADVANCE MAN by Abe Koogler

A one night only, daring staged "reading"

Horse Head Theatre Co. Presents

ADVANCE MAN by Abe Koogler

Directed by Rachael Logue


CSz Houston (Comedy Sportz), 2201 Preston St., Houston 77003

Monday, October 8, 2018 @ 8pm


Bear Creek is a small, sleepy town; but when rumors spread that the President is coming, the townsfolk spring to life. Marcy, the local paper’s summer intern, is determined to break the story -- but try as she might, no one can answer to the who what when where and how of the President’s arrival, and certainly not the why. But when Marcy meets Advance Man, a mysterious suit who may or may not work for or against the President, Marcy suspects she’s been asking the wrong questions. Ripe with experimental language, movement and absurdism, ADVANCE MAN is a new dark comedy exploring what it means to be a politically-engaged American.


Horse Head Theatre Co. (HH) is proud to continue our 9th Season with a free staged reading of ADVANCE MAN by Abe Koogler at Comedy Sportz  (2201 Preston St., Houston 77003) on Monday October 8, 2018 at 8pm, directed by Rachael Logue. Featuring a cast of eleven actors; modern dancers from Frame Dance, choreographed by Lydia Hance; live original music and foley sound by Alli Villines (Horse Head’s We’re Gonna Die); and live lighting by J. Mitchell Cronin; Horse Head continues their 2018 experiment for what a staged reading could be. 


Going above and beyond, Horse Head has secured permission to present ADVANCE MAN with selected design elements, performance conventions and most importantly, a fully-formed production vision. This isn’t your average “staged reading,” it’s more like an invited technical rehearsal. In his author’s note, Koogler warns readers to leave their expectations at the door: ADVANCE MAN “might just as well be called a song with movement. Or a dance piece with words. Or a symphony with narrative elements. In other words, it might be called something other than a play.”  


Admission: Free  


Presented in collaboration with Frame Dance Productions. 


Concessions generously sponsored by Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co.


ADVANCE MAN was developed at UT-Austin’s UT New Theatre series. 


Recommended for ages 13+ for mature themes. Persons under the age of 18 should be accompanied by an adult.

Reel Forces

Kick-off Oscars weekend with an evening of the meta, the miniscule, and the far-reaching as Musiqa celebrates experimental film and live music.

Kick-off Oscars weekend with an evening of the meta, the miniscule, and the far-reaching as Musiqa celebrates experimental film and live music. “Reel Forces” examines the traces of humanity, memory, and conflict through “Beyond Zero: 1914-1918,” a moving and mesmerizing film of rare WWI archival footage by auteur-director Bill Morrison, and scored for string quartet by Aleksandra Vrebalov. Two short films curated by Houston Cinema Arts Society and musical works by Marcus K. Maroney and Florent Ghys complete the program.

Origin Stories

Even as borders are built and broken, music has the power to connect cultures.

Even as borders are built and broken, music has the power to connect cultures. “Origin Stories” explores the mingling of cultures in a program featuring the premiere of Anthony Brandt’s “Songs from the Source: Nine African Folk Songs,” for soprano and ensemble. Musiqa travels to Cuba as Tania León retraces her Havana roots in “A la par,” and to the north, in Pierre Jalbert’s “Crossings,” which imagines the cultural and emotional upheaval his French-Canadian ancestors faced as they migrated to the U.S. Plus, the program includes a reading of new work by acclaimed Houston poet Sarah Cortez.
