Film Screening

Theater Performance

“La Musica Deuxième is an extraordinary piece of writing refined and rewritten over decades by Duras until it flowed like a musical score. Playing the gaps between what is said and unsaid, it shows a woman demanding that a history of violence be processed and acknowledged even if the truth is slippery.”

–Helen Banner, Director
