Tête-à-Texte: An evening of Francophone Drama

Tête-à-Texte: An evening of Francophone Drama

April 21-22 7:30PM Music and Communication Building (Studio C 422)

Produced by The Department of Languages and Cultures in association with Francophilia Foundation and Les Tricolores

Inspired by improvisational techniques, the devised approach of theater, and absurdist drama, Tête-à-Texte is an experimental montage of monologues and scenes from the French and Francophone repertoire that could be best summed up in one word: behind. Behind the curtain, behind the façade of acting, and behind what is really at play onstage: the subtext of emotions. From Molière’s cynicism to George Pérec’s fetishism, from contemporary poets to pop musicians and singers, our goal is to showcase the mechanics involved in the act of building a character, and to let an author’s voice echo through. When art becomes deconstruction, life- and any action on or off stage, for that matter- is essentially performative.
