The Kitchen Presents Marianna Ellenberg's PAWEL & EBOLA Photo The Kitchen Presents Marianna Ellenberg's PAWEL & EBOLA
by Julie Musbach - Jan 25, 2018

The Kitchen presents Marianna Ellenberg's Pawel & Ebola, a new play that tells the story of the imagined offspring of neurologist and famed hysteric -photographer Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot in order to examine trauma and how notions of hysteria have been projected onto women from fin-de-si cle France to contemporary America (February 22 24). This is the largest onstage undertaking yet for Ellenberg: the film and performance artist sets her cinematic taste for camp and psychodrama onstage in this full-length, time-traversing play. Combining narrative and fragmentary text, dance, live audio experimentation and electro-acoustic music, Pawel & Ebola continues Ellenberg's deconstruction of themes like institutional misogyny, spirituality, and the female subject in American mythologies. This trenchant riff on various power structures asks how the global capitalist societies of today can contort even feminism to exploitative ends.

BWW Review: What it Means to Live with Origin Theatre Company's POISON
by Kristen Morale - Nov 19, 2016

Poison brings two people together in a cemetery to discuss the desecration and movement of their son's grave, as part of the cemetery's plan to expand. In a style that is incredibly that of Waiting for Godot, this divorced couple comes together and must wait for the person who will come speak to them about their son's grave; of course he doesn't show up. Not having seen or heard from one another in ten long years, they awkwardly await the man that is to save them from their discomfort of being reunited; when he never arrives, they begin to talk about the past.
