Endangered Pieces

World Premiere at the Abrons Arts Center. Fresh off the acclaimed The Painted Bird trilogy cycle, Palissimo charts new territories with Endangered Pieces, a performance unfolding in a series of dream-like scenes set amidst a looming calamity.

Throughout this enigmatic world premiere about the fragile nature of human existence and art making, the visceral trumps the literal, leaving visual impressions that linger and gestate in the subconscious as both alluring and unsettling.

Created under direction of Pavel Zuštiak with performers Jaro ViňarskýMathew Rogers, musicians

Christian Frederickson and Bobby McElver, and lighting by Joe Levasseur assisted by Dan Stearns.

Benefit Performance + Afterparty,  Wed, October 2, 2013 at 8pm, $50; Tickets
Performances, October 4-5, 10-12 at 8pm, $20; Tickets


PRESS: Zuštiak creates no movement that looks like dancing for its own sake. It becomes a statement of identity, a task to be completed, an urge to be satisfied.    —Deborah Jowitt, ARTSJOURNAL: DanceBeat
