Die Nasty! The Live Improvised Soap Opera presents:
Paris 1919 – 1925: The Moderns
On Monday October 26th, 2015, Die-Nasty! The Live Improvised Soap Opera packs its steamer trunk full of art supplies and cigarettes and sets off for Paris in the Roaring Twenties. Die Nasty is spending its historic 25th season in the City of Light, where Hemingway, Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein hold court in cafes. Where Picasso, Dali, and Miro paint brilliant visions of fractured surrealism, and where Josephine Baker and Django Reinhardt create music that will ripple around the world. In cafes, boarding houses, studios and galleries, the Moderns pursue lives of passion and experimentation that will change our culture forever.
GENIUS! PASSION! NUDITY! SCANDAL! EASELS!
And it’s not just the world of art that’s being re-invented. In the aftermath of World War I, diplomats, politicians and spies have gathered to redraw the map of the globe itself.
WE’RE MAKING HISTORY… UP.
