About"Jeux Droles" is the first acting workshop for children to learn and have fun in French - Starting in January @ CoucouBrooklynMissionTeach a language through acting, boost self-confidence and have fun.Description
Have fun with acting
“Jeux D’roles” means roleplay and funny games. Our approach is based on words and pronunciation, sense memory, repetition, improvisation and immersion, invented scenes or scenes from existing plays.
Learn a language
Our workshops are bilingual but mostly taught in French. Our objective is to teach children how to learn to communicate and have fun in another language. Speaking a language is not only about saying words. It is also about finding your “persona” in another language. This includes thoughts, sensations, emotions and experiences in another language that can be discovered and explored through acting. Our classes offer a trusted and safe environment that enables children to develop imagination and focus, and to build self-confidence.

Le Petit Prince was born in New York.
Published in 1943, The Little Prince is one of the world's most beloved books. Author Antoine Saint-Exupery wrote and illustrated the book in New York, between Long Island and Manhattan.
"The Little Prince" tells the adventures of a boy who hails from a tiny asteroid no larger than a house. On his way to Earth, he visits other planets and meets a king, a conceited man, a drunkard, a lamplighter and a geographer. On Earth, he encounters a fox who teaches him: "What is essential is invisible to the eye." The phrase is the book's central theme and one Saint-Exupery revised 15 times, including the version "What matters cannot be seen."
“The Little Prince: A New York Story” now through April 27 at the Morgan Library & Museum, 225 Madison Avenue, at 36th Street; 212-685-0008; themorgan.org

With Shoah, 87 year-old Claude Lanzmann re-oriented our understanding of the defining event of the 20th century. Three decades after that cinematic milestone, he does so once again with the masterful THE LAST OF THE UNJUST from an entirely new personal, historical and aesthetic perspective. At the new film’s center is Benjamin Murmelstein, the last Jewish elder of Theresienstadt (the so-called "model" concentration camp) who worked under the direct supervision of Adolf Eichmann, and a figure who was once despised by many of the surviving inhabitants of that dreadful "city". In a lengthy interview shot in Rome that was originally intended for Shoah (intercut with Lanzmann himself revisiting specific sites in Vienna and the Czech Republic, as well as footage, photos and artworks), the brilliant Murmelstein—sometimes excitedly but more often calmly – explains his actions and precisely defines his paradoxical role in history.

The talented artists in Mélange of Milieu, examine, develop and play with the concepts and emotions that are at the root of human experience and understanding. Often tackling ideas that are with us from a young age, they produce work which has a universal appeal while also being filled with a very personal passion. The artwork in The Essence of Abstraction uses the familiar forms and techniques of abstract art as a starting point for sophisticated analysis and innovation

This panel brings together four esteemed translators to discuss the process of retranslating a work of literature that has already been translated into multiple languages, often multiple times. Some opine that every generation needs a new translation of Homer, and this panel will discuss the literary and linguistic dynamics underlying that understanding as well as the endeavor of working with or against pre-existing translations.
