Strange Cargo May 3 - 13
Thu, Sun @ 8pm / Fri, Sat @ 8:00 & 9:30 pm
The Cathedral Church of St. John's the Divine
In this capstone of the critically acclaimed The Painted Bird trilogy, inspired by Jerzy Kosinski's controversial novel of the same name, choreographer Pavel Zuštiak collaborates with composer Christian Frederickson and delves into assumptions of refuge and home. The urge to survive is inherent, the feeling of otherness is universal and yet reality shifts the minute the desire to belong is turned inside out. Learn more / buy tickets
"A vivid, often anguished, imagination shines through in [Zuštiak's] work..." - The New Yorker

El Museo del Barrio
Part live performance, part video installation, Carmelita Tropicana, Erin Markey, and Becca Blackwell, offer a glimpse into a future where celebrity culture has pitched a battle between the primacy of virtual and artistic lives; in which revolutionaries keep bees in a secret underground; and in which a half-woman, half-bear scientist has gained the upper hand...

“And you realize what you’re watching isn’t so much an artist inventing himself as inevitably discovering the true self within.” –The New York Times
Performance and visual artist John Kelly explores the character of creative genius as it occurs in the gradations between the ephemeral and the tangible. His past creative work runs the gamut from mixed media dance theatre works to vocal concerts and exhibitions.
John Kelly completed work on The Escape Artist after being awarded the Ethyl Eichelberger Award in 2010. The Escape Artist traces the story of a man who has a trapeze accident while rehearsing a theatre piece based on the life of Italian Baroque painter, Caravaggio. Stranded on a gurney with a broken neck in the hospital emergency room, he finds refuge in the images that flood his mind – the sinners and saints, prostitutes and gods that populate Caravaggio’s paintings. The Escape Artist contains 7 original songs by John Kelly & Carol Lipnik, as well as covers of songs by Claudio Monteverdi and John Barry.
Specific past projects by John Kelly have pondered Egon Schiele, Caravaggio, Antonin Artaud, Joni Mitchell, Barbette, Jean Cocteau; autobiography, the Berlin Wall, the Troubadours, the AIDS epidemic, and Expressionistic Film. These works have been performed at The Kitchen, PS 1, the Warhol Museum, the Whitney Biennial, The Tate Modern, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival. Paintings, drawings, photographs and video works have been exhibited in galleries and museums. He has sung the music of John Cage at the San Francisco Symphony, and collaborated and recorded with Laurie Anderson, David Del Tredici, Natalie Merchant and Antony and the Johnsons.
Writings include an autobiography 'JOHN KELLY', published by the 2wice Arts Foundation, in association with Aperture. Acting credits include the Broadway production of "James Joyce's The Dead", and films by John Turturro and James Franco. Awards and Fellowships include 2 Bessie Awards, 2 Obie Awards, an Alpert Award, the 2010 Ethyl Eichelberger Award, a Visual Aids Vanguard Award, 2 NEA American Masterpieces Awards, and an Eliot Norton Award. Fellowships include NYFA, Art Matters, Inc., The Guggenheim Foundation, The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, The Civitella Ranieri Foundation, and the Rome Prize at the American Academy in Rome.

Festival; The 2wice Arts Foundation; The Civitella Ranieri Center; The Rome Prize at the American Academy in Rome; the Armory Artist in Residence Program at the Park Avenue Armory; and a commission from the 2010 Ethyl Eichelberger Award created by Performance Space 122 and made possible with generous support from the Gesso Foundation.
