Double Edge Theatre, the acclaimed ensemble led by founder/ Artistic Director Stacy Klein, now celebrating its 25th Anniversary, makes their return to New York's La MaMa Annex with a world premiere performance inspired by Bruno Schulz.
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, Double Edge deeply explores Schulz's powerful prose and life, as well as his banal death at the hands of a jealous Nazi, to create an unforgettable journey through the human experience in the modern world.
Double Edge Theatre is widely renowned for their long-term collaborations, classic literature adaptations, and original theater performances. Throughout their history, this unparalleled organization has demonstrated the deeply felt tribute to past artists combined with new "explosive" possibilities drawn from an original training methodology and approach to long-term devised ensemble work.
