DESIRING SIMONE
Adapted from the notebooks of Simone Weil
Director: Philomena Bradford, Ioana Jucan, Daniel Ruppel & Timothy Simonds
Script & Adaptation : The notebooks of Simone Weil
Cast: Philomena Bradford, Ioana Jucan, Daniel Ruppel, & Timothy Simonds
Conceived and performed by Philomena Bradford, Ioana Jucan, Dan Ruppel & Tim Simonds. This devised performance investigates the nature of endurance. How, through and in extraordinary moments of suffering and disaster, do the human and her environment transform themselves and each other to sustain their play across the field of ”life”? Centered on the fervor of philosopher and mystic Simone Weil, the piece explores both the struggle to reanimate her legacy of endurance and the (im)possibility of enduring such reanimation ourselves.
Performance not recommended to persons under 10.
Performance presented in English.
