PUNCH is Miro’s radical reimagining of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella. Miro and Parkins will experiment with everything from microphones, wawa pedals, commedia masks, and the company’s own dancers, to make a rowdy combination. From Italian street theater to the Ballets Russes, from The Punch and Judy Show to The Simpsons, the commedia characters have been a part of our culture – high and low. Miro is playing with those archetypes to turn Pulcinella into a bawdy and comic romp. Both Miro’s Artistic Director Amanda Miller and Parkins began as classical artists who are now bending the rules and lines of genre in their respective arts.
