Play Reading: "Truth Hurts and So Does Love"

The Truth Hurts and So Does Love is David Nicholson’s 21st century prose translation of Molière’s Le Misanthrope - the French master’s most modern play. A play of character rather than plot, it focuses on Alceste, a man principled to the point of psychological distress, and Célimène, the independent woman he loves - and the men and women who surround them: his realistic friend Philinte, bad poet Oronte, wealthy wastrels Clitandre and Acaste, prude Arsinoé, and Célimène’s sensible cousin Éliante.

Educational Series: Commedia dell'Arte

This workshop aims at offering to its participants a first encounter with Commedia dell'Arte. We will be working with masks, expressions, and the physical representation of archetypes. Once the basics of these archetypes is understood and assimilated, we can move on to the second phase which is to improvise simple everyday situations within the frames of clear canvases. Before you know it, you'll be experiencing comical scenes depicting humanity in all its variety, for the pleasure of actors and audience. In a nutshell, a refreshing workshop laying the groundwork for future acting, with or without masks!
