  • 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.

  • The Women on the 6th Floor

  • Oct 6, 2011 to Oct 28, 2011
  • Location: Paris Theatre
  • Description: Paris, 1960. Jean-Louis (Fabrice Luchini, Potiche) lives a bourgeois existence absorbed in his work, cohabitating with his neurotic socialite wife Suzanne (Sandrine Kiberlain, Mademoiselle Chambon) while their children are away at boarding school. The couple’s world is turned upside-down when they hire a Spanish maid Maria (Argentinean-born actress Natalia Verbeke) through whom Jean-Louis is introduced to an alternative reality just a few floors up on the building’s sixth floor, the servants’ quarters. There, Jean-Louis befriends a group of sassy Spanish maids (Pedro Almodovar regular Carmen Maura, Lola Duenas, Berta Ojea, Nuria Sole, Concha Calan), refugees of the Franco regime, who teach him there’s more to life than stocks and bonds, and whose influence on the house will ultimately transform everyone’s life.

  • Nick van Woert: Terra Amata

  • Oct 7, 2011 at 7:00am to Oct 29, 2011 at 2:00pm
  • Location: French Institute Alliance Francaise
  • Description:

    In Nick van Woert: Terra Amata, an exhibition of new works, Brooklyn-based sculptor Nick van Woert borrows icons from the past, referencing the ideals of former generations, and overlaps them with more familiar contemporary materials.

    The work illustrates a chronology of forms and ideas encompassing everything from classical sculpture, the Donner Party, and Henry David Thoreau, to Ted Kaczynski, Pruitt-Igoe, and 6221 Osage Avenue. The exhibition's title refers to an archaeological site in the South of France where it is believed fire was first used domestically.

    This event is part of Fiction & Non-Fiction, one of Crossing the Line 2011's three curatorial program perspectives.

  • Dinner and French Conversation (Parlez-Vous Francais?)

  • Oct 20, 2011 from 3:00pm to 7:30pm
  • Location: Veranda NYC
  • Description:

    Bonjour tout le monde,

    Last Dinner at Veranda was amazing that's why we are repeating the experience  next Thursday at 7:00PM for dinner and drinks Hookah and more.

    We are expecting many Francophones and Francophiles that evening. Let's converse in French over some great food.

    If you prefer to skip the dinner feel free to join us for drinks. The main goal is getting together and speaking French.



    Restaurant by day and lounge by night. Veranda is in a world of its own. Exposed brick walls, outdoor tables, and a glass facade greet you on a modern Mediterranean dining experience.









    The lounge, with its candle lit atmosphere, hookahs on order, and international beats is the perfect place for an intimate drink.









    For those feeling more ambitious, Veranda spins contemporary house, hip-hop and rock all night long in its main dining room. Surrounded by dim, sexy lighting and packed with a European crowd the party looks straight out of the Mediterranean.










    How to get there:
