UN LIEU DE VIE

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Musical, Other
Written by Multiple Writers, Directed by Ann Warren

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
