  • MINUIT by Yoann Bourgeois at BAM

  • Oct 5, 2016 at 3:30pm to Oct 8, 2016 at 5:30pm
  • Location: The Brooklyn Academy of Music
  • Description:

    As part of the Brooklyn/Paris Exchange and Tandem Paris-New York, BAM and Théâtre de la Ville (France) present the U.S. premiere of Minuit, by French director Yoann Bourgeois, from Oct 5 - 8, 2016.

    Poised somewhere between inhale and exhale, night and day, Minuit (“midnight”) marks the US debut of charismatic acrobat and performer Yoann Bourgeois, a major force in France’s nouveau cirque scene. This series of vaudevillian vignettes is the result of Bourgeois’ rigorous physical experimentation into what he calls the “suspension point,” the body’s ineffable moment of weightlessness while in motion. As he and his dazzling collaborators fall and fly, chairs, stairs, trampolines, and microphones are transformed into opportunities for humor, insight, and physical magic. Bodies mimic pulleys and gears, weights and counterweights, revealing poetry in that elusive space in between.

  • Oct 6, 2016 to Nov 18, 2016
  • Location: Lincoln Plaza Cinema and IFC Center
  • Description:

    Strand Releasing is pleased to announce the US release of BEING 17, acclaimed French director André Téchiné (Wild Reeds, Thieves)’s moving exploration of adolescent sexual awakening, with a script co-written by director Céline Sciamma (Girlhood), starring the great Sandrine Kiberlain (Mademoiselle Chambon,) Kacey Mottet Klein (Sister, Gainsbourg), Corentin Fila, and Alexis Loret. BEING 17 is scheduled to open on Friday, October 7 in New York at Lincoln Plaza Cinema and IFC Center followed by a national release.

    Unfolding over four seasons in the arresting, mountainous setting of the French Pyrénées, BEING 17 is the story of Damien (Mr. Mottet Klein) and Thomas (Mr. Fila,) two French teenagers from very different upbringings who go to the same high school but are constantly fighting. When family circumstances bring Damien’s mother, Marianne (Ms. Kiberlain) to invite Thomas to live with them, the young men are forced to coexist and work through their emerging and complicated desires.
