About the Company: F*It Club

To provide a forum for actors, writers, directors, and producers to develop and produce work in film and theatre without waiting for the hierarchical system to say "yes."

Comprised of an up-and-coming group of actors, writers, directors, and producers, F*It Club is committed to providing equal opportunity for all of its members. We hope to build both a home and a community for artists to share, grow, and create.

Our film and theatre production company was founded with the goal to provide access and opportunity. We say "f* it" to waiting for opportunity to knock. We are seizing opportunity and making it ours. We want to make work and we want to make it NOW.

Doesn't Everybody Do It In Paris?  | Open: 06/09/10 Close: 06/26/10
Based on Gustave Flaubert's classic novel Madame Bovary, Doesn't Everybody Do It In Paris? is a multimedia dance theatre piece that explores the catastrophic outcome of attempting to reconcile the reality of one's everyday life with idealized notions of romance and glamour. Combining video, live and recorded music and text, and choreography set on untrained dancers, the piece examines, in a non-narrative style, both Emma Bovary's unchecked fantasies and their eerie echos in the life of the novel's first English translator Eleanor Marx Aveling.

Doesn't Everybody Do It In Paris? uses live and recorded music and text, video, and choreography with untrained dancers, to examine, in a non-narrative style, the intersections in the stories of Bovary and Marx Aveling. The use of untrained dancers spotlights the thematic considerations of aspiration and failure within the piece and questions the traditional role of dance as an amusement for the elite.

The production features James Allerdyce as Edward Aveling, Max Dana as Léon Rodolphe, Brady Jenkins as Charles Bovary, Nathan Lemoine as Monsieur Lheureux, Nadège Néchadi as Eva Frye, Maki Takenouchi as Emma Bovary, and Siobhan Towey as Eleanor Marx.
