New Play Features Installation Design By Abigail DeVille

JACK produces the first professional production of this bold short work by visionary playwright Adrienne Kennedy, directed by Charlotte Brathwaite (Princess Grace Award) in collaboration with Abigail DeVille (resident artist, Studio Museum in Harlem). She Talks to Beethoven is a 30-minute, non-seated installation/performance that integrates found objects, drawing, silhouette and projection to tell the story of Suzanne Alexander, an African-American woman living in 1961 post-independence Ghana. After the sudden and mysterious disappearance of her husband, she seeks solace in the spirit of the composer Ludwig van Beethoven, whose letters she has been studying. Actors Natalie Paul and Paul-Robert Pryce play Suzanne and Beethoven, respectively.

NY Times Review on Ephrat Asherie’s performance

Read what the New York Times has to say about current Workspace participant Ephrat Asherie's performance in James Brown: Get on the Good Foot.

"Where those choreographers stumble, Ephrat Asherie succeeds. One of her numbers (credited to her, Jennifer Weber and Mr. Sallid) has her slinking in a red dress to 'It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World,' and the way she keeps falling to her back but also spinning on it — she’s an adept B-girl — eloquently and subtly salutes and questions Brown’s immeasurable impact on hip-hop alongside his troubling treatment of women."
