    "Jeux Droles" is the first acting workshop for children to learn and have fun in French - Starting in January @ CoucouBrooklyn
    Teach a language through acting, boost self-confidence and have fun.

    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.

    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

  • Location: Michele Mariaud Gallery, SoHo
  • Description:
    Many Faces is the new exhibition by French Illustrator Serge Bloch. Opening Reception June 5th, open to the public. Exhibition: June 6 July 4. You have probably seen a Serge Bloch drawing before. One of the most prolific and talented living French illustrators, Bloch has a instantly recognizable voice, and appears regularly in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, The Los Angeles Times, as well as GQ and National Geographic. His work is humorous, heartfelt, with a deceptively childlike simplicity that has made him sought after as an illustrator for hard-hitting news stories, children’s books, and everything in between. Bloch was awarded a gold medal by the Society of Illustrators, the Bologna Ragazzi award, he Best Book Award in Taiwan and many others. “I am drawing stories and writing drawings,” says Bloch, “even with stories that have no rhyme nor reason or with sketches drawn upside down.”

  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    The original work of three French artists Eponine Saint Hillier, Monique B. and Murielle Argoud will be on display at Agora Gallery, NYC.

    About Eponine Saint Hillier

    Eponine Saint Hillier is a relentlessly innovative artist whose work stretches the boundaries of painting. Saint Hillier depicts the traditional human body, but with a clash of painting practices – splashes appear over carefully-wrought surfaces, with realistic forms sharing the same space as abstract – or with atypical media. Even her technically straightforward oil paintings are arresting for their subjects’ direct gaze and surreal, beautiful use of color. Saint Hillier’s latest series is a combination of old and new techniques she calls “living painting.” She applies paint directly to a model’s body in swirling, charged colors that heighten and embroider the planes of the human shape. Then those models are photographed against a painted background to create a trompe-l’oeil effect that plays with depth, form, and above all
