  • Night by Charles L Mee

  • Apr 26, 2015 at 4:00pm to May 10, 2015 at 1:00pm
  • Location: Theater for the New City
  • Description:

    The New Stage Theatre Company is proud to present the world premiere of "Night (Thyestes 2.0)", a movement theatre piece written by Charles L. Mee and directed by Ildiko Nemeth, with projection design and Visuals by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger. Inspired by Seneca's Thyestes, the piece combines sections of the classic tale with an equally dark modern vision. A whirlwind of vivid scenes bridges the torture, murder and cannibalism dogging ill-fated Tantalus to modern plagues both frightening and banal, from war crimes to YouTube vapidity. This world premiere performance brings a bold mix of standout projection design and visuals, choreography, costuming, lighting and sound to Mee’s rhapsodic vision, resulting in a night of wonderfully disorienting theatre.

    Directed by Ildiko Nemeth

    In collaboration with:
    Laia Cabrera & Isabelle Duverger - Visuals and Projection Design
    Federico Restrepo - Lighting
    Egle Paulauskaite - Costume
    Galway McCullough - Fight Choreography

    Lyon Opera Ballet

    Apr 29-May 3

    Lyon Opera Ballet, heralded for its commitment to showcasing the work of significant contemporary choreographers, performs a spectacular program featuring some of the best choreography created over the last thirty years. On tap is William Forsythe’s Steptext, a 1985 quartet for three male and one female dancer in which the choreographer plays with theatrical conventions and constantly shifts weight and balance between dancers. The program also includes Benjamin Millepied’s Sarabande, a “rollicking work” for four male dancers that includes “good-natured jostling” Dance Magazine and the New York premiere of the Israeli-born, French-based choreographer Emanuel Gat’s Sunshine.More info.

    Barbara Cassin

    Why do we sometimes feel like strangers even when we are at home? Why do we sometimes feel at home in places where we have no roots? Why do we like to return there and why do we feel nostalgic when we are away? What does it mean to be at home? Can we ever really be at home? These are just some of the questions treated by philosopher and philologist Barbara Cassin in her new work Nostalgia: When Are We Ever at Home?  (La Nostalgie, Quand donc est-on chez soi ? Ulysse, Enée, Arendt, Autrement, 2013.) Through a subtle re-reading of the writings of Homer, Virgil, and Hannah Arendt, Cassin produces an in-depth analysis, at once scholarly and personal, of nostalgia and its relationship to language.

    Barbara Cassin is a French philologist and philosopher.  She is Emeritus Research Director at the CNRS in Paris. Cassin is the author or editor of more than 20 works of philosophy, including the  Dictionary of Untranslatables (2004 / English translation 2014), a philosophical lexicon
