Open: 11/01/14- Close: 11/15/14 BAL-TRAP
Bal-Trap, a play By Xavier Durringer, is a bittersweet drama. The action takes place after a popular gig on the village square, where two young people begin their love story while two others try to restore their passionate love, the one they had before daily chores doused their flame. But bumps and bruises are present, hidden deep inside, ignored, but still guiding the characters toward a fate that prevents them from living their one true Love. Each of them is looking for a soul mate, but they cannot understand each other. They follow their “Sweet Dream” to escape their loneliness and their pasts, believing, with an insatiable faith, in a better future where true Love can move mountains and make them – and the rest of us – travel to the ends of the earth.

It is a classic in the making.

Un Lieu de Vie is an experiential piece that is loosely based on the 1917 Jean Cocteau - Erik Satie - Pablo Picasso collaboration of the ballet Parade. It represents the collective memory of Erik, an eccentric, memory-starved, and lonely New York artist who seeks glimpses of the past while wandering the streets of Manhattan. Through Erik's rumination, we are transported to specific locales at various stages of his life. We experience Erik's memories through the clamor of sounds, sights, and rhythms that embolden him to fulfill his destiny. Performed in English & French
