CHRISTODOULOS PANAYIOTOU

This week at the Hammer, Christodoulos Panayiotou presents THE PARADOX OF ACTING, his “meditation on the impossible theatrical representation of death and an exploration of the vicious relationship between the spectator, the actor, and the characters trapped in the action.”*

This lecture-performance takes as its starting point the 1991 staging of La Bayadère by Rudolf Nureyev, at which point the dancer’s health was in precipitous decline.

 

CHRISTODOULOS PANAYIOTOU—THE PARADOX OF ACTING, Wednesday, January 31, at 7:30 pm.

BILLY WILDER THEATER, Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Boulevard, Westwood, Los Angeles.
