PREMIER DATE: 2/3/17
STARRING: Anastasia Barron, Laura Kley Jacobsen, Katherine Cryan
DIRECTED BY: Scott Felluss
MUSIC COMPOSED & PERFORMED BY: Caitlin Tabancay Austin
WRITTEN BY: Jean Genet
Genet’s provocative thriller was a natural evolution in Felluss’s directorial trajectory. Virtuosic physical gestures appended to a haunting choral and harmonium-based score by Caitlin Tabancay Austin (Kitka; Iron Henry) made this sold out premier into a tour de force in the aftermath of the 2016 US Election. Bay Area patrons welcomed the avant garde, but accessible, rendition of Genet’s classic. The production was a result of a four month-long research phase into Indian acting pedagogy directed by Felluss, enabling a truly intercultural experience for all.
