Segal Film Festival on Theatre and Performance, March 1-3, 2018 (NYC)

FTP Festival

March 1 – 3, 2018
Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, The CUNY Graduate Center
365 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10016-4309 | ph: 212-817-1860 

This year’s theatre focus in FTP includes works of and about East- German playwright Heiner Müller’s  revolutionary Hamlet; theatre provocateur Christoph Schlingensief’s campaign for Chancellor (run from a circus tent at the Volksbühne, Berlin); the Italian cinema impresarios, the Taviani Brothers, directing high-security prison inmates in their hybrid production of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar; The Living Theatre’s Judith Malina in her collaboration with the Italian theatre company MOTUS; Intimate portrayal of the work processes of two contemporary theatre titans – Jan Fabre as well as Romeo Castellucci, and many, many more.

Also, check out the screenings of Israeli Avi Mograbi’s Boal-Inspired work with Refugees in Israel (“Between Fences”), and NYC-based Brian Mertes and Melissa Kievman’s hybrid documentary (“I am a Seagull”) – both to be followed by discussions. 

Lastly, there’s a ongoing VR performance work by the polish TR Warszawa Group which applies a very interesting method, with interesting applications to documentation and research. Director Grzegorz Jarzyna will be at the Elebesh Hall lobby – and he’s keen to discuss this.
