Birdie

Presented by Carnegie Nexus

Thu-Fri, April 26-27

Birdie is a multimedia performance with live video, film fragments, scale models, 2,000 mini animals, and three performers tackling this messy world with wit, criticism, and an unfailing commitment to humankind. In this extraordinary production, Birdie manages to actually perform a migration: a movement between the mirages of two worlds—one confounded by war, displacement, human smugglers, and ecological devastation, and one that enjoys civil society, sanitary conditions, renewable resources, and a common welfare. What connects the two is an unstoppable journey of migrants and the ceaseless movement of all that exists.

Witness as the border between stage and screen, word and image, Hitchcock’s The Birds, and the game of golf dissolve before your eyes.

Winner of the Silver Lion Award for Innovation in Theatre at the 2015 Venice Biennale.

This is not to be missed!

Escape Velocity

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, May 318PM

Imagine a circus shaped entirely by the audience and one very unique deck of tarot cards. Escape Velocity tells the story of a soul trapped in limbo, revealed one draw at a time. What scripts have we been handed? What prisons do we construct for ourselves?  What is our capacity for resistance, rebellion, and rebirth?

Double Blind Productions is an interdisciplinary performance collective spanning Pittsburgh, Colorado, and New York. Double Blind currently consists of Amanda Hackman, John Hackman, Moriah Ella Mason, Angela Whalen, and Miles Wilder with guest collaborators the Bombyx Collective and O’Ryan the O’Mazing.
