NYU’s La Maison Française will host actor Maurice Durozier for a performance, “Parole d’acteur,” and discussion, with NYU Professor Judith Miller, on Mon., Dec. 11, 7-9:30 p.m. at its 16 Washington Mews (between University Place and Fifth Avenue) location.
The performance, “Parole d'acteur” (“Tales from an Actor’s Life”), is an invitation to enter into the mind of an actor, from behind the stage curtain. Far from revealing the mystery of theatre, it highlights its contradictions and is a testimony to the years of initiation into the profession, the revelatory moments, the traps, and the discovery of the laws of this other world.
Durozier, who performs in several languages, is an actor at the Théâtre du Soleil in Paris, where he has been on stage for more than three decades.
The performance and discussion will be in French.
Subways: R, W (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place); A, B, C, D, E, F, M (West 4th Street).
