New York, 7 p.m.
Celebrated French playwright and director Pascal Rambert will be in residence at PS21 from December 6–10, adapting and rehearsing two of his masterful plays: The Art of Theater, performed by Jim Fletcher, and With My Own Hands, featuring Ismail ibn Connor. Nicholas Elliott, who has translated numerous Rambert works as well as theater pieces by Olivier Py and others, will assist with the English versions. The residency will culminate on December 10 with work-in-progress stagings of both plays, ahead of their presentation at PS21, as part of the Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival in January 2022. Please contact us for details about attendance and tickets to the work-in-progress showcase.  The Art of Theater, composed in 2007, is a manifesto about the nature of dramatic acting, spoken by a single actor (Fletcher) who addresses, not the audience, but his dog, who patiently attends to his master’s voice.
