About this show

Choreographed by Pavel Zuštiak / Palissimo Company The Painted Bird Trilogy, two years in the making, is an ambitious, emotionally charged production inspired by the classic and controversial novel of the same name by Polish-born author Jerzy Kosinski. 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. Award-winning choreographer and director Pavel Zuštiak excavates the tale's themes--identity, otherness, displacement, and transformation--in three uniquely staged performance events. His approach integrates dance, video, and visual projections with live music composed by Christian Frederickson, Ryan Rumery, and Jason Noble. Limited seating for a complete cycle of three productions (4 hrs, 2 intermissions) $60 ($55 Senior and Students) Individual parts tickets: $25 (at the door, cash only, based on availability)
