Amidst is an immersive live performance/video installation that focuses on nostalgia as a place of entrapment on a journey "home.” It is the second installment of The Painted Bird Trilogy, a work in three parts choreographed and directed by Pavel Zuštiak. The trilogy's title comes from Jerzy Kosinski’s controversial novel of the same name. Amidst is presented in a fluid theatrical structure, as audiences move freely amidst a sensory immersive installation at the intersection of dance performance and visual art. Haunting, ghostlike images by photographer Robert Flynt interface with the bodies of performers Lindsey Dietz Marchant, Nick Bruder, and Pavel Zuštiak, creating a juxtaposition of past and present, real and virtual, as constant shifting illusions. Amidst features an original score composed and performed live by Christian Frederickson, who is joined by musicians Jason Noble and Ryan Rumery. Amidst lighting and scenic designer is Joe Levasseur, costume designer is Nick Vaughan, with video byKeith Skretch, and dramaturgy by A.P. Andrews.
