A transformative theatrical event unlike any you’ll see this season, Poland’s Teatr Zar brings its remarkable Gospels of Childhood to UCLA Live in its exclusive U.S. engagement. A profound, visceral and ritualistic spectacle reminiscent of the work of Poland’s _Song of the Goat _(last seen at UCLA Live in 2005), _Gospels of Childhood _incorporates acting, chanting, movement and millennia-old polyphonic funeral songs from Georgia, Bulgaria and Greece to envelop the audience in a deeply moving and meditative experience. Using texts from Christian mythology, including the resurrection of Lazarus and the testimony of Mary Magdalene, Gospels transports audiences to a realm hovering between the worlds of the living and the dead, ultimately leading to a fully realized theatrical moment of redemption. Second-generation disciples of the late theater revolutionary Jerzy Grotowski, this extraordinary multinational group of artists strives to create work that communicates on a primal, non-spoken level, leaving audiences emotionally and spiritually altered.
