Travis Bird (The Land Between The Rivers) is a local guitarist and songwriter. Inspired by minimalism and site-specific meditation, he will improvise on acoustic guitar and also play original planned pieces, attempting to interact with the contemplative aspects of the Marigny Opera House’s space. Free to the public; donations gladly accepted.
Director Pawel Pawlikowski balances the horrors of the war and the harshness of postwar Communism with austere beauty and sublimely intimate moments, drawing out the links between truth and mystery in both individuals and society. In Polish with subtitles. Tickets $7, available at the door. Doors open at 6:30pm.
