Palissimo The Painted Bird Trilogy: Bastard, Amidst, and Strange Cargo
Palissimo The Painted Bird Trilogy: Bastard, Amidst, and Strange Cargo |
Palissimo, an adventurous dance theater company from New York, is mounting its enigmatic and atmospheric Painted Bird Trilogy as a complete sequence for the first time as a result of this Wexner Center Residency. Choreographed by Pavel Zuštiak, Palissimo's Czechoslovakian-born artistic director, The Painted Bird Trilogy is inspired by a classic and controversial novel of the same name by Polish-born author Jerzy Kosiński. The allegorical novel tells the story of a young boy making his way through war-time Eastern Europe and a brilliantly painted bird that is violently killed by its own flock, which mistakes it for an imposter.
Staging The Painted Bird Trilogy utilizes both our Performance Space and Black Box on Mershon Stage venues set up in novel configurations. You can choose to immerse yourself in a pairing of two sections of the trilogy or come on the final day to experience all three parts, with an optional box supper available from Heirloom at an additional charge of $10 if ordered in advance.
