Transitus Animae is this year’s product of the annual Butler International Theatre Exchange. Since May 12, theater enthusiasts have been intensely working with guest artist Firenza Guidi to develop the site-specific performance that involves “circus skills, physical theater, dance, music, extravagant costumes and bold acting.”
This is Guidi’s third time participating in the BITE program. She was here for Woyzek in 2002 and St. Joan in 2004. “Of all the guest artists to date, it’s fair to say that Firenza Guidi has had the most impact on the professional development of our students,” says John Green, Theatre Department chair, who founded BITE in 2002. “Indeed, many of our alums cite working with her as a life-changing experience.”
Transitus Animae will be performed at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, 4000 Michigan Road, May 23-24, Friday at 7 and 8 p.m. and Saturday at 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 317-940-9659.
