Voyage de Ouf
The word OUF is French verlan (a cool slang spoken by Francophones) for the word FOU (crazy) that is pronounced backwards! The show is an inventive theatrical production thats a mosaic of allegorical skits, each with its own color, humor and emotion.
The music is live, original, and contemporary, evoking the magic of soaring dreams. The projections and lighting creatively allow performers to transform in front of the audience.
The language is French but well make sure non-French speakers understand using English titles, gestures, and acting skills.
Ouf are on the train. Ouf wait for a bus, a truck, a boat. Ouf walk straight ahead. They come from everywhere, without knowing where they are going. Ouf feel violence and the need for love intimately intertwined. Some sleep at a beach campsite, others at refugee camps. Some dream of a lost face, others of being able to eat. All hope to find a place in the sun. In the sun? But as the earth turns, the sun moves constantly. So, when do we get there?
Voyage de Ouf is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by LMCC. LMCC serves, connects and makes space for artists and community.
