Double Edge to Present Republic of Dreams at La Mama

News   Double Edge to Present Republic of Dreams at La Mama Double Edge Theatre will present Republic of Dreams, a world-premiere work inspired by the art and writing of Bruno Schulz, at La Mama March 8-18.

Double Edge Theatre, now celebrating its 25th anniversary, is an ensemble led by founder-artistic director Stacy Klein.

According to press notes, the work "takes from the magic realism writings and imaginings of WWII-era Polish-Jewish artist Bruno Schulz (1892-1942), as well as adapts his lush, magical and sometimes erotic drawings to the stage. Using the theatre's signature style of physicality, imagery, puppetry, live instrumental and choral music, Double Edge deeply explores Schulz's powerful prose and life, as well as his banal death at the hands of a jealous Nazi."

The Mexican-Jewish author Ilan Stavans is a dramaturg and collaborator on the project.

The show will play Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2:30 PM and 7:30 PM.

The show will go up at La MaMa's The Annex at 74A East 4th Street. For tickets call (212) 475-7710.
