Performance |
Cherries have tender skin, meat and a kind of bone inside them. Their juice is red like blood. When you treat them like humans sometimes treat other humans, then they become human themselves or at least animated objects, which invite you to identify yourself with them. Inspired by fairy tales, where sometimes objects come to life and so become a projection screen for your own experiences and fantasies. In the performance Death Is Certain, sweet cherries are the protagonists. Eva Meyer-Keller removes the stalks but doesn't wash or pit the cherries. Instead they are being killed. She takes care of this business manually, in a way which turns the everyday into something brutal. Two shows: 6pm and 7:30pm.

New York Classical Theatre returns to the World Financial Center with Playing Molière. Using their signature performance style, Panoramic Theatre, this unique production of Moliere’s shorter comedies hearkens back to the 17th century playwright’s roots in the Commedia dell’Arte. The characters of Playing Molière, including cuckolded husbands, sneaky servants, demanding fathers, and quick-witted lovers, have inspired an entire generation of physical comedians such as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and the Marx Brothers.
