Republic of Dreams plays at La MaMa E.T.C.



La MaMa E.T.C. presents the Double Edge Theatre's Republic of Dreams, based on an idea conceived by Stacy Klein and co-created by Carlos Uriona & Matthew Glassman, at La MaMa E.T.C' Annex from 8 - 18 Mar 2007.

Directed by Stacy Klein, Republic of Dreams takes from the magic realism writings and imaginings of WWII-era Polish-Jewish artist Bruno Schulz (1892-1942), and adapts his lush, magical and sometimes erotic drawings to the stage. Using the theatre�s signature style of physicality, imagery, puppetry, live instrumental and choral music, the work deeply explores Schulz� powerful prose and life, as well as his banal death at the hands of a jealous Nazi.
