Statement

I am a firm believer in the fact that instead of torturing their audience with existential questions such as why human beings are on this planet, or why we feel what we feel, playwrights, directors, and actors should focus on making their audience happy. Theater is a wonderful vehicle for laughter and pain relief, and I believe that people go through enough pain in their lives to be forced to watch more pain when they go to the theater. As artists, it is our duty to make people laugh, to make them happy: because happy people make a better world.

A tribute to the victims of the Holocaust, and a commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII, “The Workroom”, takes place in the centre of Paris, in the Workroom of a tailor shop owned by Jewish Eastern-European immigrants. It begins after the liberation of Paris. Léon and Hélène have reopened the workroom, and now employ Madame Laurence, Gisèle, Mimi, Marie, and Simone. All these different destinies cross paths with one another and raise the same single question: how does one keep on living after the trauma of the war and the Holocaust?

SIREN Baroque kicks off its third season with Fyer, Fyer!, the first of four concerts exploring the ancient elements, in a special collaboration with the innovative baroque dancers Laura Careless and Marisol Cabrera. The program features blazingly passionate works by Morley, Monteverdi, Rebel, Scarlatti, and Handel, all of which use fire as a metaphor for nature’s wrath, spiritual zeal, lustful ardor, or the terrors of hell. With SIREN Baroque’s “impassioned performances” (Early Music America) accompanied by strikingly seductive choreography, it promises to be an evening to ignite the senses.
