Event: THE MYSTERIES OF JEAN THE BIRD-CATCHER


Thursday, June 18th, 8PM
Friday, June 19th at 8PM

Brickbat Books

{HTP} 
presents 
THE MYSTERIES OF JEAN THE BIRD-CATCHER
text by Jean Cocteau, 
translated by Manon Manavit

Performer: Julius Ferraro
Director: Manon Manavit
Sound Design: Jacob Brunner
feat. Mike Bruno (Vocals and Theremin)
feat. Sean Yenchick (Violin)

There are things, people, measures of time that we can't talk about, can't access, can't embody, that are outside of our experience. An "artist" with nearly infinite creative power and opportunity struggles against a history of loss. THE MYSTERIES OF JEAN THE BIRD-CATCHER is a short, solo, poetic theater plunge into self-annihilation occurring in strange locations across the city.

Also, there’s something in the suitcase.

CATCH THE BIRD-CATCHER

Running Time: ~35 minutes

{HTP} is Manon Manavit and Julius Ferraro, local artists who, along with a revolving team of collaborators in the field of experimental music, create performances focusing on fate, sublimity, and the cruelty of existence.

TICKETS ARE 5-10$ Pay What You Can.

New Arrival: Henry Darger



Henry Darger
Hardcover

Self-taught and working in isolation until his death in 1973, Henry Darger realized an elaborate fantasy world of remarkable beauty and strangeness through hundreds of paintings and an epic written narrative. Angel-like Blengins with butterfly wings, natural catastrophes, innocent girls, and murderous soldiers all appear in Darger's scenes, which are reproduced in this book in double-page and gatefold illustrations. In the volume's introductory essay, Klaus Biesenbach examines the radical originality of Darger's art, including his use of collage, incorporation of religious themes and iconography, and frequent juxtaposition of innocence with violence. An essay by Brooke Davis Anderson illuminates Darger's source materials and techniques, while another by Michael Bonesteel puts Darger's life in the context of his work. The book also includes Darger's autobiography, A History of My Life, introduced by Carl Watson. The only book of its kind, Henry Darger offers an authoritative, balanced, and insightful look at an American master.
