The Painted Bird Trilogy (NY premiere), 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.
