  • 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

  • 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.
