The episodes will be performed Sept. 20 and 21.
Presented by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), the festival begins Sept. 19 and runs through Oct. 13.
Life and Times will eventually be a 16-hour work based on a single phone conversation in which a 34-year-old woman tells her life story. The first four episodes received a special Obie Award citation after they were staged at the Public Theater in January.
The festival will also feature the United States premiere of "Systema Occam" by the French electronic music composer Eliane Radigue and the visual artist Xavier Veilhan, performed Sept. 19; "Sight is the Sense that Dying People Tend to Lose First," by Tim Etchells, performed Sept. 28; and "a (micro) history of world economics, danced," by Pascal Rambert, performed Oct. 11-13.
Crossing the Line Festival features interdisciplinary works and performances, exploring the dialogue between artists and the public. It also examines how artists help re-imagine the world as critical thinkers and catalysts for social evolution. More information can be found by visiting fiaf.org/crossingtheline.
