One of Europe's most versatile and imaginative artists, French multi-hyphenate James Thiérrée (actor-director-trapeze artist-acrobat-clown-illusionist-violinist) returns to BAM with the solo theater/nouveau cirque show Raoul. Beckett-ian in its premise, Raoul tells the story of an inhabitant of
a shape-shifting structure under siege from a mysterious outsider who shares his face and form. The intricate set includes the collapsible abode and extraordinary life-sized fabric animals created by Thiérrée's mother Victoria Chaplin.
