Seeking Charlie Russell

"Seeking Charlie Russell" will explore a particular time and place in our history while also looking at the life of the artist himself. Today more than ever we need live performance and artists like Bill Pullman to remind us of the meaning of our lives and bring us together to find a deeper connection to each other in an age that is so disconnecting.
Harold Clurman, in many ways the father of American theatre, created a company that studied together while creating new work that focused on the social and moral preoccupations of their time. Visionbox trains actors while also creating new work that explores contemporary issues through innovations in design and performance modalities. "Seeking Charlie Russell" will bring together extraordinary acting, writing, and design, while searching for meaning in the complexity of a contemporary life.
Ticket includes general admission to 4 p.m. performance followed by a talk back with Bill Pullman.
VIP ticket includes reserved seating for 4 p.m. performance followed by a talk back with Bill Pullman, and private reception with Bill Pullman and his team including food and drink. $200.
This event is funded in part through Denver Arts & Venues Cultural Partner Program.
"I first met actor Bill Pullman in 1983 when I directed him in a workshop of a new play by now established playwright Richard Greenberg. We were both beginning our careers in New York and afterwards Bill went on to an extraordinary career in Los Angeles and New York while I pursued an MFA in directing at the Yale School of Drama. Since our initial work together we have come together multiple times to create what we have called “low friction” performance work that focuses on the actor, text, and new technologies in design. One of the greatest gifts of a life in the theatre are lifelong professional and personal relationships. Bill Pullman embodies the highest level of our artform in both live and filmed performance as an actor, writer, and director.
Recently, Bill became involved with a documentary series on the life and times of Western artist, Charlie Russell. While acting is ultimately about transformation and walking in someone else’s shoes, there is something deeply personal about every role and project. Seeking Charlie Russell will explore a particular time and place in our history while also looking at the life of the artist himself. Today more than ever we n eed live performance and artists like Bill Pullman to remind us of the meaning of our lives and bring us together to find a deeper connection to each other in an age that is so disconnecting."
