Set in 1890's Paris, in and around Montmartre's famed nightclub the Moulin Rouge, Belle Epoque is a collage of hallucinogenic, absinthe-infused scenes depicting the life of the French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (to be played by Mark Povinelli).
This new work by Martha Clarke and Charles L. Mee, directed by Clarke, is performed to music by Satie, Debussy and Faure, as well as popular music hall songs of the day. Belle Epoque combines dance, music and text to paint an impressionistic theatrical portrait of the world of the great artist and the legendary music hall and its denizens -- the colorful performers and artists who inspired his work.
