Act American: An acting class for internationals
- Jan 15, 2011 at 6:00am to Feb 12, 2011 at 9:00am EST
- Location: Pearl Studios
In this introduction to acting workshop, international students will have the opportunity to learn basic acting technique while improving their English skills. We will incorporate voice work, physical improvisation and scene study to prepare students to perform in American English. The 5 session class will culminate in a presentation of monologues and scenes. In keeping with our mission to promote international theatre by living artists, we will draw on texts by contemporary international playwrights from around the world. Students will have the choice to work on contemporary American texts or translate their scene or monologue into English from their native tongue, if they so desire. The class will include regular visits to international theatre events followed by discussion.
This class is also appropriate for American students who want to connect to the international community and improve their skills in translating international plays for the American theatre.
When: Saturdays 11-2

Cinéma des femmes: Perspectives on Women Filmmakers - All Mountains Look Alike (Toutes les montagnes se ressemblent) and La dérive
- Feb 8, 2011 from 7:30am to 9:00am EST
- Location: Upper East Side
The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York's premiere French cultural center, is proud to present a new CinémaTuesdays series celebrating the rich history of women’s filmmaking in France. This February and March, Cinéma des femmes: Perspectives on Women Filmmakers will explore a carefully curated selection of women filmmakers that represents a more eclectic list than the expected canon, and includes a U.S. premiere as well as an in-person appearance by one of France’s most acclaimed young directors, Mia Hansen-Løve, to present her debut feature All Is Forgiven (Tout est pardonné).
All Mountains Look Alike - An unnamed couple walks through a wintry woodland, discussing the disappearance of a family member on a similar mountainside hike. Does the specter of the loss haunt them still—and can the ghosts of long-ago find them now? A gorgeously shot short, filmed with restraint and yearning.
Little-seen upon its release nearly forty years ago, La Dérive is a powerful Nouvelle Vag
