Written by Léonore Confino. Directed by Alexandre Oppecini. Translated by Perrine Moran. Sound Designed by Ann Warren and Concrete Timbre. Produced by Diffractions Theatre. Performed in English by Nathalie Bryant and Kyle Tuck. American Premiere (World premiere of the English version). From France comes "In The Ring," which has been nominated for a a Molière Prize (French equivalent of a Tony award). This is the play's American debut and world premiere of its English version. The play is set in a boxing arena, which serves simultaneously as a playground and as a place to explore relationships between men and women. Parents, lovers, strangers, husbands and wives, even the divorced, widowed, all struggle with their instincts, their ideals and their childish impulses. The play is fast-paced, nervously oscillating between laughter and drama. Sparks light fires and misunderstandings lead to war, despite everyone's phenomenal efforts to coexist with the other gender.

La Bestia Sweet Mother - part of Dream Up Festival 2014

Venue: ( Theater for the New City)

Theater for the New City presents
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Written and directed by Tom Block. Performed by Millie Torchetti, Patrick Bolger, Becca Weiss and Desiree Miller. Original music by Becca Weiss (singer) and Desiree Miller (cellist). World premiere. La Bestia: Sweet Mother is a multi-media theatrical reconsideration of humanity's earliest creation myths. Although the audience may believe they are in small black-box theater in the East Village, in point of fact they will have arrived on the once-a-year feast day, when our first ancestors gathered to give thanks, and try and understand how and why this earth began. The underpinning imagery in the work comes directly from these earliest myths -- Babylonia, Sumerian, Greek, Hebrew, Zoroastrian and others. The ultimate message is that creation (of being and time) and destruction (of eternity) are interlinked and perhaps the same thing. The narrative and characters provide a structure for the music, dance and chorus. This work is marked by stylized movement and words that bleed into the "mythical." A dancer, chorus and cello create the emotional carriage that takes the audience into our deepest shared past -- and into that place where the ultimate questions were considered. The title is taken from La Bestia freight train, also known as "the train of death," a series of freight trains running through Central America to the border with the United States. The trek on the train has been described as running a gauntlet of bribery, extortion, rape, kidnapping and murder, simply to arrive at the U.S. border.
