IN RESIDENCE: October 24- 30, 2017

Told in rich narrative prose, Pidor and the Wolf sets a classic tale of man-versus-nature against the hotbed of an oppressive Russian republic. Using original cello music and inventive use of found props, the artists tell a story that is both a popup book and a map of desires: simultaneously childlike in wonder, yet sensual and dark.

This event will be a staged reading of the play. This reading is the first public debut of the entire text.

Past development of Pidor and the Wolf has been in partnership with the AmericanAF Festival at the New Ohio Theatre.

IRT Theater is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich Village,  IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work. Some of the artists we have supported include Young Jean Lee, Reggie Watts and Mike Daisey.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts, and The Nancy Quinn Fund, a project of ART-NY.

PLEASE NOTE: All sales final and there is no late seating at IRT Theater.
***IRT is a fully wheelchair-accessible facility.***
