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.

Sundance Selects is proud to announce the release of YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL, the latest drama from Francois Ozon, one of the most provocative French writer-directors, featuring a star-making performance by stunning newcomer Marine Vacth. YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL is scheduled to open in New York (IFC Center) on Friday, April 25 followed by a national roll out.
“No one’s serious at 17,” wrote Arthur Rimbaud, a sentiment that may justify the choices made by 17-year-old Isabelle (Ms. Vacth), over the course of a pivotal year. Her transgressive and intimately observed coming-of-age journey is divided in four seasonal chapters and four pop songs, from her sexual awakening to her first time, to her foray into prostitution and her search for identity. Francois Ozon observes her journey without judgment, reflecting on the emotions and insecurities that saturate a young person’s entrance into adulthood, and again proves a master at coaxing strong performances from young actors. YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL was nomi

Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the upcoming release of Cédric Klapisch’s CHINESE PUZZLE, the New York-set third installment in Mr. Klapisch’s popular trilogy, scheduled to open in New York (Lincoln Plaza) and Los Angeles on Friday, May 16 followed by a national roll out.
Years after L'Auberge Espagnole and Russian Dolls, Xavier (Romain Duris)’s life is still a mess. His ex-wife Wendy (Kelly Reilly) has left him in Paris and taken their kids to New York. Always up for an adventure, broken-hearted Xavier follows them to the city and begins to piece together a life for himself amidst the cheerful chaos of downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. An imminent deadline for his new novel, the realities of immigration, his ex girl-friend, Martine (Audrey Tautou) and best friend Isabelle (Cécile de France,) add to the vibrant jumble in this comically delightful conclusion to Cédric Klapisch’s trilogy. Now 40 years-old, the characters have left a bit of their naiveté and carefree attitude behi

NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Bruay la Buissiere artist Ouni Mam in Contemporary Perspectives. The exhibition begins on May 16, 2014 and runs until June 5, 2014, with an opening reception on the evening of Thursday May 22, at 6-8pm.
About the Artist
Ouni Mam paints in a wide variety of styles, from figurative to abstract and symbolic pieces. Yet despite the diversity of subjects in her work, every piece by this artist is recognizably hers. This is thanks to her personal signature of bright, saturated colors, impasto brushstrokes, and an emphasis on light and movement. Preferring to work in oils, Ouni Mam’s powerful pieces are creations of the moment, a reflection of the artist’s instincts and emotions as she stands in front of the canvas. As the artist herself explains, she paints “the incorporeal, the conceptual and intangible.” Whatever artistic style she employs, her paintings give the impression of being transparent veils that reveal differe
