Cinderella/Cendrillon by Joël Pommerat
New York Theatre Workshop have announced that the final production of their 2013-2014 season will be Cinderella/Cendrillon, written and directed by Joël Pommerat, which will begin previews in May 2014.
In Cinderella/Cendrillon a very young Cendrillon stands at the bedside of her terminally ill mother. Barely able to hear the words of the dying woman, not daring to ask her mother to repeat herself, the young girl becomes obsessed with her mother's final words.
Pommerat is a French award-winning writer and director. Cinderella/Cendrillon marks his first work in the English language and his American premiere.
Pommerat founded the Compagnie Louis Brouillard in 1990. He served as artist-in-residence at the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris, under the invitation of Peter Brook (2006-2010), before becoming associate artist at the Odeon Theater of Europe (2010-2013) and the National Theater of Belgium. Cinderella/Cendrillon premiered 11 Oct 2011 at the National Theater of Belgium.
The creative team features scenic and lighting design by Eric Soyer, costumes by Isabelle Deffin and sound design by François Leymarie.
Cinderella/Cendrillon rounds out a season that will also include 'Fetch Clay, Make Man,' 'What's It All About? Bacharach Reimagined' and 'Love and Information.'
