No Longer Showing.
Marianna Ellenberg's Pawel & Ebola follows a dysfunctional brother and sister duo—the fictional offspring of infamous French neurologist and hysteria clinician Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot—whose world is disrupted by the arrival of a bizarre cult named “The Method.” A hybrid language and fragmented narrative convey a world torn between the precarity of global capitalism and the sexual repression and institutionalized misogyny of the 19th century. Organized by Lumi Tan.
This project was created in collaboration with choreographer Greg Zuccolo. The cast includes India Salvor Menuez, Maxwell Cosmo Cramer, Mikéah Ernest Jennings, T. Ryder Smith, Deidrea Hamid, Angeli Sion, Hanna Novak, and Alexandra Tatarsky. Music: Paula Matthusen with live sound and electronics by Anthony Dean. Set Design: Jian Jung.
