Cinco de Miro Fundraiser 4

Punch

Sunday, December 5, 2010

PUNCH is Miro’s radical reimagining of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella. In the workshop space, 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.

Civilian : Warrior

Thursday, October 25, 2007

Directed by Tobin Rothlein, Civilian / Warrior weaves the classic play Woyzeck, Indian Kali myth and interviews and imagery from recent war veterans to create a unique narrative on soldiers and citizens in our modern day culture of war. This unique combination of live dance and projected image combines elements of documentary film, multi-screen video installation and movement in hybrid between theatrical work and gallery installation. In creating Civilian / Warrior, Rothlein worked with a team of consultants and contributors, including hip-hop legend Rennie Harris, Seattle-based choreographer Maureen Whiting, former Army Sergeant John McCary, classical Indian dancer Viji Rao, co-director Amanda Miller and the Miro dancers.
