directed by Irina Brook

Irina Brook 

After sold out performances at FIAF, Celebrated Parisian stage director Irina Brook is proud to announce the extension her New York theatrical debut at La MaMa E.T.C. with “La Vie Matérielle,” a vivid interpretation of Marguerite Duras’s collection of essays on daily life, and Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own. The production features a diverse ensemble of female performers including Nicole Ansari (HBO’s Deadwood, West End & Broadway productions of Tom Stoppard’s “Rock and Roll,” Théâtre du Soleil), Obie-award winning actress, director, and writer Winsome Brown, novelist and former editor of French Vogue Joan Juliet Buck who was last seen in the film “Julie and Julia,” famed British folk-rock diva Sadie Jemmett, and concert violin soloist Yibin Li. Packed with music, girl-talk, and refreshing frankness, this evening is a festive gathering of talents; an experience of sharing these authors’ extraordinary words while cooking, laughing, crying, singing, and dancing together in an imaginary and theatrical kitchen. Irina Brook, daughter of director Peter Brook and actress Natasha Parry, has directed theater and opera productions throughout Europe. Her Paris-based theater company, Compagnie Irina Brook, is currently on tour with four different productions. Brook is a recipient of the prestigious Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres.
