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

Music Box Films is proud to announce the release of Roger Michell's (Notting Hill) acclaimed dramatic comedy LE WEEK-END, set in Paris, and starring two of Britain’s national treasures, Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (Iris, Topsy-Turvy, Another Year) and Lindsay Duncan (Under the Tuscan Sun, Mansfield Park), as well as Jeff Goldblum. A hit with critics and audiences in England, LE WEEK-END is scheduled to open in New York and Los Angeles on March 14.
In Mr. Michell's magically buoyant and bittersweet film, Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan play a long-married couple who revisit Paris for a long weekend for the first time since their honeymoon, in hopes of rekindling their relationship—or, perhaps, to bring it to an end. Diffident, wistful Nick (Broadbent) and demanding, take-charge Meg (Lindsay Duncan) careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock and grapple with love, loss, regret and, disappointment, in their own very English way. When Meg and

Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the release of ON MY WAY, the love letter to Catherine Deneuve written specifically for the screen legend by writer-director Emmanuelle Bercot. ON MY WAY has been selected as the Opening Night of Lincoln Center's Rendez-Vous with French Cinema on March 6, and will be released in New York on Friday, March 14 at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas.
After being dumped by her married lover for a 25-year-old woman, former beauty queen Bettie (Catherine Deneuve) grows tired of managing her failing restaurant and aging mother and, desperately trying to shake a lifetime of regret, impulsively sets off on a road trip adventure with an unexpected traveling companion, the ten year old grandson she barely knows. Emmanuelle Bercot (Polisse, Clement)'s love letter to screen icon Deneuve is an engaging and whimsical journey of self-discovery and renewal.
Catherine Deneuve has appeared in more than 100 films since gaining wide acclaim for her roles in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

A warm, funny, literate comedy in which two French actors portray two French actors, friends at odds with one another in every possible way, except their love of Molière’s The Misanthrope. Lambert Wilson (OF GODS AND MEN) plays Gauthier, tall, handsome, and the beneficiary of a leading role in a ridiculous soap opera as a beloved cosmetic surgeon who “saves lives.” Fabrice Luchini (who previously worked with Le Guay in WOMEN ON THE 6TH FLOOR) as Serge has met with much less success, becoming a middle-aged curmudgeon who has renounced the stage to live on the glorious île de Ré, off France’s Atlantic coast. Gauthier arrives on Serge’s turf to try to convince his pal (Luchini, in real life, a Molière expert) to return to Paris to play opposite him in a new production. When not arguing or rehearsing scenes while biking, they consider their options as personified by a local porn actress and an attractive Italian divorcée, as well as the lure of island real estate.

After pioneering books on Georges Dumézil, Claude Lévi-Strauss, and Michel Foucault in the 1980s, Didier Eribon emerged as a leading intellectual interlocutor in France, engaging a host of the most important thinkers of our time. He has subsequently become a significant academic and public intellectual in his own right, a theorist of gay identity and psychoanalysis whose trenchant 2009 autobiography, Retour à Reims, looked back on his own development as a complex reaction to the working-class culture of the eponymous industrial city in northeast France. Join Eribon, Leo Bersani, Joan A. Scott, and Eric Banks as they discuss Returning to Reims, published in translation last fall by Semiotext(e).
