Terayama Shuji's "La Marie-Vison"
"La Marie-Vison" tells the perversely fascinating tale of Marie, a transvestite prostitute who lives in elegant squalor with her dedicated servant. Every day, for eighteen years, Marie releases an exotic butterfly into the open fields of the living room. Every day for eighteen years the beautiful boy, imprisoned in her den, catches and kills it.  The beautiful boy is tempted with visions of the outside world, free from the wiles of wicked Marie, but maybe the boy wasn't made for the outside world.  Maybe none of us were.

In 1967, Terayama Shuji and his experimental theater troupe, Tenjou Sajiki, first premiered the story of "La Marie-Vison" in Tokyo, Japan. The shocking piece was then translated into English, reworked and brought to NYC in collaboration with Ellen Stewart and La Mama Experimental Theater in July of 1970. This theatrical production has not been performed again in the U.S. until now! Over 40 years later, Kipuka Theater, using Don Kenny's original 1970 translation and scholarly references from "Unspeakable Acts"  written by Carol Fisher Sorgenfrei, brings to life Terayama Shuji's eclectic band of characters!

Please feel free to come early as there will be pre-show entertainment!
