The Body Lautrec
Aaron Cromie and Mary Tuomanen
Sunday, September 21
The Caplan Studio Theatre at the University of the ArtsMap
Art and medicine collide in this physical theater exploration of painter Henri Toulouse-Lautrec: outsider, exhibitionist, clown, medical object, and self-appointed archivist of the Paris underground. From creators of 2013’s Saint Joan, Betrayed, comes a show about an artist who equated the grotesque with the sublime.
September 13th’s Noon show will be followed by a post-show discussion with Doctor Thomas Fekete of Temple School of Medicine — Metaphor or Misery: syphilis in the post-Romantic Era.
