The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presents World Voices : International Play Festival, as part of the 2015 PEN World Voices Festival, which will showcase play readings by nine of the world’s most respected dramatists from Afghanistan, Argentina, Cuba, France, Germany, Indonesia, Kenya, and Uganda.


The festival will present The Animal of Time, a performance of the English translation by Amin Erfani of Valère Novarina’s L’Animal du temps, a theatrical adaptation of Le Discours aux animaux. In this musical performance, the protagonist speaks to animals—that is to say the audience—while taking them on a journey into the depth of language, one that reinvents itself every time the actor opens his mouth. This theatrical performance features actor Chris Kayser, director Valéry Warnotte, musicians Frédéric Lamarre and Adrien Tronquart, and technician Rafaël Georges. The performance will be followed by a conversation with Valère Novarina.

Supported by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the Lehman College.
