Discounted Tickets for Northsiders: Birdie

Presented by Carnegie Nexus and the New Hazlett Theater
April 26th and 27th at 8:00 pm

Join us for the U.S. premiere of Birdie by the internationally acclaimed group from Barcelona—a multimedia performance complete with live video, film fragments, 2,000 mini animals, and three performers tackling this messy world with wit, criticism, and an unfailing commitment to humankind. Birdie manages to perform a migration on stage: 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.

Witness as the border between stage and screen, word and image, Hitchcock’s The Birds, and the game of golf dissolve before your eyes. This is not to be missed!

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

Sherlock Holmes has not been seen for more than three years and is presumed dead following his confrontation with Moriarty at Reichenbach Falls.

Free Tickets for Northsiders: In the Company of Ghosts

In the Company of Ghosts

Presented by Frank Ferraro and Adrienne Wehr
September 22nd, 23rd and 24th

What happens when we look in a mirror? Do we witness a reflection of our true selves or the sum of the ghosts that travel with us? Utilizing a range of disciplines to conjure their personal ghosts, veteran artists Frank Ferraro and Adrienne Wehr take us on a fearless journey of life on life’s terms.

This world premiere is the result of a two-year collaboration between Wehr and Ferraro. In sharing their own stories with each other, they recognized universal themes common to us all, inspiring them to bring these stories to life through spoken word, video, original music, installation art, soundscapes and more.

“Radical vulnerability that surges forth into the souls of the audience. Frank and Adrienne bravely convey
the full spectrum of what it means to be human. They hold nothing back.”

— Gina, audience member (workshop presentation)
