Black Birds of Bialystok
Join the conversation when members of one of the most prestigious puppet theaters in Poland and U.S. based Sandglass Theater discuss their collaboration on the production of Black Birds of Bialystok.
You're invited to join us and listen as this multinational panel of puppeteers share experiences of their collaboration as part of Fall 2012 Academic Speaker Series. Black Birds of Bialystok is a collaboration between two puppet theaters: Bialystok Puppet Theater in Poland, and Sandglass Theater in the USA. It is a piece about Poland’s difficult relationship to its Jews, in the period from 1906 to 1968. In a larger sense, it is a piece about everyone’s relationship to history, about how events that happened before we were born are still part of our personal story. It is performed by five actor/puppeteers, in Polish (and some English), with English subtitles. As part of the Puppets in the Green Mountains Festival, this show will have its gala premier several days after the panel presentation.
This event is on Monday, Sept 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the Auditorium of the East Academic Building at Landmark College. Registration is suggested, especially for groups, but not required. The event is free and open to the public.
