progra10With the Theatre of a Two-Headed Calf

Painter, playwright, philosopher, novelist, and expert on drugs, S.I. Witkiewicz (1885-1939), known as Witkacy, is now recognized as a major figure of the twentieth-century avant-garde. Join us to celebrate the latest Martin E. Segal Center publication, Seven Plays by Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz, translated and edited by Daniel Gerould. The evening will feature a scene from Tumor Brainiowicz, staged by the Theatre of a Two-Headed Calf, directed by Brooke O’Hara with music by Brendan Connelly-a highlight of the 2002 La MaMa season. The evening will also feature short excerpts from films of productions of several Witkacy plays, pop and operatic musical settings of his texts, and projections of his paintings and portraits. Daniel Gerould (Moderator), Lucille Lortel Distinguished Professor of Theatre, The Graduate Center, CUNY.
