The Secret Theatre is excited to be collaborating with theatre practitioner Clare Hammoor

to present the world premiere of

THE SECRET PARIS PROJECT

A queer clown show devised with an ensemble of eight women

Directed by Clare Hammoor

LIMITED 2-WEEK ENGAGEMENT

APRIL 17-26, 2014

 

Long shadows, hungry desires, sad clowns and devastating dreams. These are sparks in the

devised theatre-making at the heart of THE SECRET PARIS PROJECT. The Project features

an ensemble of eight clowns as they exploring the sad, queer world of Paris in the 1930s.

Inspired by Brassaï's photographs from Le Monocle in Paris during this period, this

ensemble of women is working within the fading art of clowning in order to breathe new

life into our complex connections with queer histories in order to imagine undreamt

utopias. Accompanied by a live percussionist, Abby Fisher, this new, breathtaking

production questions desire and longing through the potent laughter and inescapable tears

that can only be found in the mysterious world of clowns.

 

This project’s ensemble stars: Johana Barral, Corrie Blissit, Marjorie Conn, Lauren

Durdach, Jamie Law, Jessica Ranville, Dana Scurlock and Kamaria Williams.

This production features original, live percussion by Abby Fisher. Costume design is done

by Amalya Meira Goldberg. Scenic design by Bradley Wehrle. Lighting design by Jake

DeGroot. Charlene Deen is the production stage manager. This production is co-produced

by The Secret Theatre (Richard Mazda, Artistic Director) and Clare Hammoor.
