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.

Ryder SmithDeidrea Hamid, Angeli Sion, Hanna Novak, and Alexandra Tatarsky. Music: Paula Matthusen with live sound and electronics by Anthony Dean. Set Design: Jian Jung. Lighting Design: Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew. Costumes: Nancy Stella Soto and Ala Dehghan. Assistant Director and Stage Manager: Molly Zimmelman
