Residence@95: “Desiring Simone”

May 11, 2014 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Empire Black Box

Conceived and performed by Philomena Bradford, Ioana Jucan, Dan Ruppel, Tim Simonds, Julieta Cardenas

This devised performance investigates the nature of endurance.  How, through and in extraordinary moments of suffering and disaster, do the human and her environment transform themselves and each other to sustain their play across the field of “life”? Centered on the fervor of philosopher and mystic Simone Weil, the piece explores both the struggle to reanimate her legacy of endurance and the (im)possibility of enduring such reanimation ourselves.

This piece is produced in association with Romp of Otters.
ROO is the graduate theater company in the Brown University department of theatre arts and performance studies.
