Crossing the Line Festival 2018

The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) presents Crossing the Line Festival 2018, the 12th edition of its critically acclaimed interdisciplinary showcase for avant-garde creative talents from around the world.

The wide-ranging, thought-provoking lineup includes What Remains, a collaboration between choreographer Will Rawls, poet Claudia Rankine, and video artist John Lucas that explores the effects of surveillance — by others and by the self — on black Americans; the world premiere of film actress Jeanne Balibar’s one-woman show Les Historiennes, focusing on three influential French historians (who will also be on hand); French choreographer Boris Charmatz’s 10,000 Gestures, in which 20-odd dancers each perform thousands of unique, never-to-be-repeated movements to the sounds of Mozart’s Requiem; a fresh interpretation of Yasmina Reza’s hit play Art staged by the theater collectives tg STAN of Belgium and Dood Paard of the Netherlands; and a performance of a new “psycho-acoustic” work by Brooklyn-based French composer Leila Bordreuil, complete with mind-bending visual projections.
