POLLOCK by Fabrice Melquiot in Provincetown

Following its sold-out premiere in February at Abrons Art Center, New York, POLLOCK comes back in the form of a theatrical reading featuring the original actors, Jim Fletcher and Birgit Huppuch at Twenty Summers in Provincetown, MA, for one unique performance on June 16.  French playwright Fabrice Melquiot's drama, translated into English by Kenneth Casler and Miriam Heard, and directed by Paul Desvaux, illuminates the profound connection between the brilliant madness of Jackson Pollock and his marriage to artist Lee Krasner, exploring the charged space between his genius and her spirit, his inhibitions and her frustrations.

POLLOCK in its English version is a production from Compagnie L'héliotrope.

"The production is tactile, kinetic, carnal, but its world is interior, dark and seductive" - Laura Collins-Hughes, New York Times (Feb. 19, 2018)
