Ionesco Suite

January 23 – 26, 2019


Premiere New York Premiere
Production Language French
Country of Origin France
Description Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and seven actors from his Théâtre de la Ville put five Ionesco plays into a blender and serve up a potpourri of absurdity, hilarity, befuddlement, and witticism. Demarcy-Mota, whose affinity for mid-20th-century playwrights was masterfully displayed in
three previous BAM engagements (Rhinoceros, 2012 Next Wave; Six Characters in Search of an Author, 2014 Next Wave; State of Siege, 2017 Next Wave), returns with a boldly conceived, delicately executed and intimate production. Framed as a buttoned-up dinner party that sinks into no-holds-barred inebriation, the scenes and texts of Jack, or The Submission; Delirium for Two; The Bald Soprano; The Lesson; and Conversation and French Speech Exercises are chopped up and reassembled into this constantly surprising Ionesco Suite.
