An Interview with Director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota
“We are living through a time when we all have a tendency, at one level or another, to one degree or another, to shut out the negative destruction all around us,” – Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota, director of The State of Siege.
Written by Nobel Prize–winning author Albert Camus, staged by leading avant-garde French director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and produced by the celebrated Paris theatre company Théâtre de la Ville, The State of Siege is set to take the country by storm this fall on its first visit to the United States.
Check out this interview with director Demarcy-Mota where he declares, “Although it is a very dark play, I believe it actually evokes a world of beauty, of the power of love, the necessity for us to find meaning in life through engagement and resistance as we confront our worst fears.”
The State of Siege runs NOV 9 – 11 at the Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre.
