Montgomery College, in Partnership with Alliance Francais to Host French Performing Artist Pierre Megos April 5
On April 5, 2013, a common man will lead audiences into an extraordinary future world created through the dual layers of a live performance on an empty stage viewed in concert with the finished video form. “Vision” is Pierre Megos’ personal conception of the future, in which his character, the ordinary Mr. John, lives out extraordinary adventures in a real world that has the appearance of a dream.
There are two performances, noon and again at 8 p.m., both at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus’ Cultural Arts Center, 7995 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, Md. Parking is available in West Parking Garage or W-1 Lot. Click for details.
The matinee fee is $10 and no charge with a valid Montgomery College ID. The evening performance is $20. Seniors, children, Montgomery College faculty and staff and AFDC members are $15. Montgomery College students are only $5. For more information about purchasing tickets, click here http://francedc.org/Events/?id=119.
By using both theatrical and cinematographic techniques, actor and artist Megos creates a powerful scenic abstraction that permits the spectator to simultaneously watch a film and its creation in real time. Megos draws from his passions for cinema, theater, and Hollywood to question and explore human nature via the green-screen, achieving two incredibly artistic feats: He is able to question and explore human nature through his projection of a future world while also showing the art of film, theater, and movement. Pierre Megos was born in Brussels, Belgium to Greek parents. He received a Master’s degree in Acting and Performing Arts and has since worked as an actor, performer, dancer, writer, filmmaker and director. The use of multiple artistic vectors is integral to his identity as an artist, with each providing him new ways to directly touch the audience and reform their personal conceptions of art, culture, and the world around them. This performance is produced in Washington, DC with the support of Wallonie Bruxelles Théâtre/Danse in partnership with Montgomery College.
