Chagall as Theater Muse is an exploration of Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater’s world premiere of The Grand Parade (of the 20th Century), inspired by the work of Marc Chagall and created by Double Edge Theatre, whose artists “surround us with stunning visual imagery…and jaw dropping aerial feats” (Boston Globe).
Director Stacy Klein and members of the company, along with Phillips Curator Elsa Smithgall, discuss the deep study of Chagall that informs this wordless, music-infused spectacle, and demonstrates through video, costumes, and props some of the artistry that will be on stage at Arena February 6–10.
*Every Thursday at noon in January, hear a spotlight talk about the Phillips’s painting by Chagall, The Dream (1939). By donation
In collaboration with Arena Stage.
