Snow White or the Fall of the Berlin Wall will be presented by La Cordonnerie at FIAF from March 18-19, 2017 at 2pm.

Get a glimpse inside a magic mirror where fiction, history, and fantasy collide. Snow White has been transported into the 20th century—Berlin, 1989 to be exact. Set during the Cold War, this nuanced re-imagining of a timeless tale delves into the very real drama of being a teenager raised by a step-parent.

The French company La Cordonnerie brings their signature mix of film, music, and theater to New York for the first time. Sound effects, score, and narration are performed live in front of an original film, bringing the magic of theater-making center stage.

Ages 8 & up

Performed in French with English supertitles.

Founded in 1997 in Lyon, La Cordonnerie has developed a multidisciplinary style of creation—fusing theater, film and music—that they call “cine-performance.” The company’s method consists of re-writing and adapting well known stories, from literary classics like Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to Shakespeare’s Hamlet to fairy tales like Ali Baba and Hansel and Gretel, reading themselves into this profound and infinitely rich material, and shaping the tales into modern and offbeat versions suitable for all audiences over the age of 6 or 8. The adaptation phase is followed by the making of a silent film, which is shown on stage, accompanied by musicians, actors and sound engineers who re-create live the sound texture of the film, using a multitude of instruments and incongruous objects. Since 2005, La Cordonnerie has produced a repertory of seven shows presented regionally, nationally and internationally—totaling over a thousand performances.
