Studio Teatrgaleria artistic director Natalia Korczakowska—keeping Poland’s avant-garde alive amidst a nationalist threat—has adapted and staged the writings of Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz to exhilarating end in WITKACY / TWO-HEADED CALF, a performance art-theater piece now in its second week at Redcat.

Shaped with delicacy, precision, and waves of comedic velocity, this hallucinatory family satire brings together a brilliant band of Polish actors with a group of young American players associated with the CalArts Center for New Performance., whose associate artistic director, Amanda Shank, will join Korczakowska tomorrow night for a pre-show conversation about the project.


Tuesday through Friday, October 22, 23, 24, and 25, at 8:30 pm.

PRE-SHOW CONVERSATION on Wednesday, October 23.


631 West 2nd Street, downtown Los Angeles.
