6 QUESTIONS: Pascal Rambert


Playwright, director and choreographer Pascal Rambert took a moment out from putting the finishing touches on A (micro) history of world economics, danced to answer 6 QUESTIONS from La MaMa.

1. What was the original inspiration for this piece?
A photo in a french news paper of a family evicted from their house in Detroit.

2. This show has been performed all over the world, using local performers. How much does it change from country to country?
The frame stays the same but it changes a lot because of the personalities of the participants.

3. What have you learned from creating this show?
That utopia is not dead.

4. How would you describe your aesthetic?
Get the complex out of the simplest on stage.

5. What are you doing when not working?
Work.

6. What does working in New York City and at La MaMa mean to you?
I feel connected.
