Immerse yourself into the famous Jewish Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector?s Journey to YES.
We begin at our Choose! Clarice Lispector?s Gala on October 6th, 2016 to raise funds for our upcoming production, Inside The Wild Heart, a sensorial theatrical immersion into the life and works of Jewish Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector. The show will premiere on November 3rd, 2016 in New York, NY.
Beginning at the Gala, with performance art glimpses of the show, and finally through the Inside the Wild Heart theater production, you?ll see, feel, and experience why Clarice Lispector is described as the most important Jewish Brazilian writer in the world since Kafka, and her persistent questioning of the CHOICES between yes and no.
