Highlights: Under The Radar (NYC, USA)

L’EFFET DE SERGE
Philippe Quesne/Vivarium Studio (France)

09-LEffetDeSerge

Sunday Afternoons, in his living room and for a limited audience, a character named Serge performs 1-3 minutes
numbers based on special effects. Low-key humor and homespun magic always merge in Quesne’s work.

Inspired by the popular lecture circuits of the 19th century, Chautauqua! Weaves lectures on history, culture,
capitalism with live music, slapstick, magic, dance and melodrama. Chautauqua! Features guest lecturers, performers, and surprises in a celebration of the culture we all share and the moment in which we share it.

Performed by and created in collaboration with Jonathan Capdevielle
Jerk is an imaginary reconstruction, with puppets, of the crimes perpetrated by American serial killer Dean Corll who, with the help of teenagers David Brooks and Wayne Henley, killed more than twenty boys in Texas during the mid-70s.

ADS
NYC Players/Richard Maxwel
l

Ads marks a departure in the work of celebrated downtown auteur Richard Maxwell and NYC Players. Moving beyond the traditional video screening into the realm of live performance, Ads stages three-dimensional video recordings in the theater. Recorded speeches make the appeal for independence, displaying ideas and beliefs held up to be essential. Are we humble? Are we great? Can we begin to claim back space?
