  • LOVE CRIME directed by Alain Corneau

  • Sep 1, 2011 to Sep 30, 2011
  • Location: Lincoln Plaza and Landmark Sunshine Theatres
  • Description: LOVE CRIME is a remorseless tale of extreme office politics, played brilliantly by Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier. Isabelle (Sagnier) is the young ingénue assistant, while Christine (Scott Thomas) is the older woman, a senior executive in a multinational company doing deals around the world. At first they are friendly. Christine, the able executive, is happy to pass the grunt work along to the up-and-coming Isabelle as she learns the ropes. But when Christine starts to take credit for Isabelle's ideas, and a fellow worker bee begins to fuel Isabelle's growing doubts about Christine's duplicitous "all-for-one" attitude, the ground is prepared for all out war. LOVE CRIME is a complex, mischievous, surprising and ultimately devastating look on the corporate world, a last magical effort from one of the world's most loved directors.

    About the Artist

    Combining symbolic elements of the figurative and the abstract, French artist Christian Perez de Carvasal creates stunning canvases that reflect all the movement and energy intrinsic to city life. Inspired by a childhood in Paris, the artist paints sprawling scenes highlighting the majesty of modern architecture and the dynamism of crowded sidewalks and streets. Yet interspersed amid his urban landscapes are peaceful humanlike creatures which serve in juxtaposition to the harried pace that commonly defines city life. He explains, “I am inspired by urban life, people in motion, architecture, and colors. My mission is to provoke emotional and political reflections and visual expressions.”


    One of the hallmarks of Carvasal’s work is his us

  • Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal's Chamber Music

  • Sep 27, 2011 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm
  • Location: Elebash Hall, The Graduate Center, CUNY
  • Description:

    On Sept 27,  Live @ 365, a new world music series presents Ballake Sissoko and Vincent Segal's Chamber Music, a stunning collaboration and a hit of last year's globalFEST. 

    Elebash Hall, 365 5th Ave, NYC

    One of the top kora (21-stringed lute-harp) players of the new generation, Malian artist Ballake Sissoko has worked with everyone from African icons (Toumani Diabate) to blues masters (Taj Mahal) and Italian minimalist composers (Ludovico Einaudi). Vincent Segal has taken the cello into new realms as a musician with the French trip-hop group Bumcello and in collaborations with Sting and Elvis Costello. Sissoko and Segal struck up a friendship that blossomed into an elegant, rich acoustic collaboration. The unexpected intertwining of their instruments creates an intimate space for subtle, yet striking sounds flowing from African traditions and European classical roots. It's chamber music for the 21st century.

    Styles animaux

    La question de l’animalité est au centre de la pensée actuelle, et témoigne d’une inquiétude de l’humain. Mais elle conduit aussi à une anthropologie élargie, et en révèle la dimension esthétique : la nécessité de faire attention aux « manières » de l’être, aux « phrasés » du vivant, à des vies qui sont tout entière contenues dans leur style, leur mode, leur expressivité. Avec Balzac et Ponge, avec Uexküll et Portmann, on observera les leçons de style que donnent les animaux, et la façon dont la littérature moderne sait se rendre attentive à cette foule de styles et de manières d’être.

  • Atelier Francophone

  • Sep 27, 2011 at 3:00pm to Dec 6, 2011 at 2:00pm
  • Location: Midtown West
  • Description: L'atelier Francophone est un cours de théâtre proposant des exercices sur l'imagination, le corps et la voix afin d’élaborerun jeu créatif et "réel". Nourrir ce jeu, c’est mettre à contribution la vie intérieure de l'acteur, explorer la richesse et le potentiel de sa propre individualité, et découvrir le lien harmonique qui l’unit à son partenaire.  

    Le cours intègre des méthodes diverses d'apprentissage du jeu (Meisner, Stanislavski, Chekhov, etc.) pour que l'acteur puisse découvrir les outils les plus utiles à son répertoire.

    L'accent est mis sur le travail en groupe. L'intérêt est de créer une troupe d'acteurs composée d’individus qui apprécient et essaient tout autant de nourrir le travail de la compagnie entière que d’enrichir leur propre savoir-faire.  

    Ce semestre, nous travaillerons sur des scènes diverses écrites par des auteurs contemporains francophones.

  • Location: French Institute Alliance Française/ Florence Gould Hall
  • Description:

    The Belgian actor and master of laughter and physical comedy, Jos Houben, presents a hilarious and enlightening exploration of laughter; its causes and effects, and the role of the body in its creation.

    A graduate of Paris's renowned Jacques Le Coq School, Jos Houben dissects the mechanics that trigger laughter: facial expressions, the idiosyncrasies of the body, the act of falling down, and the importance of timing. A delightful and amusing master class on one of life's greatest pleasures.


    "There are laws that seem to apply to any human being, of whatever race or culture, concerning the laughter of the body: the clumsiness, the mis-timing, counterpoints, surprises, accidents, all those things"—Jos Houben


    "A veritable professor of mirth."—The Times (London)


    The Art of Laughter, created by and with Jos Houben
    Produced by Jos Houben and Compagnie Rima
