Richard Foreman, famous avant-garde director and creator of the Ontological-Hysteric Theater in New York, has worked a lot in Europe, including one creation in Rome, one in Stockholm and six in Paris.
Foreman's most recent work in France was his Don Giovanni at the Opera de Lille, back in 1991. Foreman will be back in Paris this fall with his new work, called Pearls for Pigs.
As part of the "Festival d'Automne a Paris" (Paris Fall Festival) Pearls for Pigs will open in Genevilliers (in the north suburb of Paris) on Sept. 24. The run will be extremely short since there will be only seven performances (including two matinees on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28). Pearls for Pigs will be Foreman's sixth production for the Paris Fall Festival.
This new play, written and directed by Foreman, is about a succesful artist, simply named the Maestro, who finds out, after a long career, that he hates theater.
David Patrick Kelly, David Cote, Yehuda Duenyas, Peter Jacobs, Tom Nelis and John Ogleeve have been announced as part of the still uncomplete cast, as of August, 18. The play will be entirely performed in English with a direct translation system. Booking and informations can be obtained at the Theatre de Genevilliers (Phone number : 331 41 32 26 26). Tickets prices range from FF 140 to 95 and FF 80 (discount prices).
