Cohen Media Group is proud to announce the release of MARGUERITE, writer-director Xavier Giannoli’s satirical tragicomedy set in France in the 1920s, starring Catherine Frot (The Dinner Game, Family Resemblances) as Marguerite Dumont, an eccentric and exceedingly wealthy would-be Opera diva.

Not far outside Paris, at the beginning of the Roaring 20s, Marguerite lives in a sumptuous mansion, spending much of her time singing famous opera arias dressed in elaborate theatrical costumes. Marguerite sings whole-heartedly, bearing her soul, but is also terribly, and comically, out of tune. When a young, provocative journalist writes a rave review of her latest private recital, Marguerite’s delusion that s

New York, New York – Laurence de Valmy is pleased to announce an exhibition “Colors & reflections” of recent paintings at the French restaurant O Cabanon in Chelsea, NY. The exhibition will open on April 6 and will remain on view through June 6, 2016.
Laurence de Valmy is a French painter who fell in love with the American movements of Contemporary Realism and Photorealism, to the point of becoming a realist painter herself. She believes that what we see influences our mood. Therefore she chooses to paint colorful and bright paintings to create happy and peaceful moments in time.
For this exhibition, curated by Emilie Boix, Manager at OCabanon, Laurence will present a body of work around the study of the light and its impact on colors and reflections. “It’s fascinating to notice how light transforms the colors or how reflections are playful. I’m very pleased of this collaboration with the team of OCabanon. The atmosphere of the restaurant is welcoming and is all about spending a good

This performance, crafted as a journey through the life of a Giullare spanning monologues, soliloquies, storytelling, dialogues and crowd scenes, and redefining the notion of order and power. The protagonist of this comical mystery finds his roots in the medieval jugglers and commedia dell' arte, and as a genuine fool, voices subversive preaching with a chuckle!
Actor Panos Vlahos uses his technical ease to perform a number of different characters as a fool, a player, a peasant, soldiers, villagers, the Pope and Jesus Christ in a one-hour statement. Performed in a church Triantafyllidou and Vlahos subvert the politics of philosophy in a contested public space that both sensors and provides context to political discourse.
“Our Mistero Buffo is a social interpretation of the Passion Stories, from the point of view of the Guillare, a clown that explores and reconstructs the meaning of Miracles!” says director Lyto Triantafyllidou.
